Our success in sustainability is thanks to many important contributors and sustainability-focused organizations such as:
City of Ottawa, through its Climate Action Plan
The original greening efforts 2010 and the GRen Plan of 2011 enabled OCH to begin a sustainable transformation through various pilot projects. The plan also prepared OCH to access generous incentives to make additional pilot projects even more feasible.
In April 2016, OCH was awarded $12.2M in SHARP funding from Ontario’s Green Investment Fund to refurbish aging buildings in the portfolio with retrofits such as energy-efficient boilers, insulation and windows. This funding allowed us to better meet the modern challenges of climate change despite our housing being constructed in the 1960’s and 1970’s.
