What is a CIP?

Community Improvement Plans (CIPs) are widely used in Ontario to stimulate rehabilitation initiatives and to stimulate the development and redevelopment of an entire community or a specific area. Once implemented, the plan allows municipalities to provide tax assistance, grants or loans to assist in the rehabilitation of land and buildings located within the defined community improvement project area.
