Heatherington is found south of Alta Vista and north of South Keys. It is one of Ottawa’s most diverse neighbourhoods. But it is also one of the poorest. Almost 60% of young people and 40% of seniors in the neighbourhood are low income. All one has to do is cross Heron Road and these rates drop to below 5%. Our community land trust would create the opportunity for the neighbourhood residents to determine their collective future through shared ownership of land and forming partnerships. We will work together to develop permanent affordable housing and a community hub.
