Peoples Official Plan Coalition
The City of Ottawa’s Official Plan does not go far enough to deal effectively with the climate emergency, the homelessness emergency, housing equity, active transportation, access to greenspace, waste management, walkability, human-scale intensification, food security and other key dimensions of urban life. We work to analyse and shape policy outcomes of the City’s Official Plan and its implementation, with a view to greater economic, social and climate justice, and ethical city planning practice.
Who are we?
We bring urgency and ambition to city hall
The Peoples Official Plan (POP) is a coalition of organizations focused on bringing greater urgency and ambition on climate and social justice issues to the implementation of Ottawa’s Official Plan.
The Official Plan guides the City of Ottawa’s development. POP analyses and tracks progress and advocates for specific policies and actions that will make Ottawa a more liveable, equitable, and sustainable city.
