Niagara Official Plan

Niagara Region is anticipated to grow to a population of 694,000 people and 272,000 jobs by the year 2051. The 2022 Niagara Official Plan is a long-range land use planning document that sets out what we protect while managing where and how the region will accommodate this growth.

The plan will help create sustainable and thriving communities for residents and businesses through polices on topics like:

  • Natural environment
  • Climate change
  • Housing
  • Employment
  • Transportation

The plan also identifies policies that will be integrated into local municipal official plans to help guide community planning decisions.

The 2022 Niagara Official Plan replaces the 2014 Office Consolidation of the Regional Official Plan.
