First Ottawa Housing Co-Op in 10 Years to Open

Blue Heron Co-operative Homes - the first non-profit housing co-op to be built in Ottawa in over 10 years.

The co-op recently received an award for energy efficiency and sustainability from the Ottawa-Carleton Homebuilders Association. Blue Heron is an 83 unit housing co-operative, with a mix of townhouses and an apartment building. It was fully occupied on Sept. 1, 2006.

Blue Heron was made possible due to financial assistance from the Federal and Provincial governments under the Canada-Ontario Affordable Housing Program as well as financial assistance and fee relief from the City of Ottawa under the Action Ottawa program.
