Be part of making Ottawa an inclusive, affordable and liveable city for all.   


The City's Official Plan, a policy framework until 2045, does not go far enough to deal effectively with the climate emergency, the homelessness emergency, equity, transportation, greenspace, walkability, intensification and food security. 

On Wednesday, October 27th, City Council approved the new Official Plan. The policy will now go to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing for adoption and implementation.


Who are we?

The People's Official Plan (POP) is an informal alliance focused on bringing greater urgency and ambition on climate and social justice issues to the development of Ottawa's Official Plan.
