NOTICE to all Home and Residential Property Owners

Ottawa homeowners all received notices regarding the Vacant Unit Tax in the mail.  In short, the City has initiated a 1% tax to be applied to vacant residential properties. 

Every residential property owner in Ottawa needs to make a declaration to the City indicating if the occupancy status of their residential properties by March 16.  After that date there may be a penalty fee and the 1% tax can be applied to the property.  

The online portal is now open.  

There are alternate and accessible options available as well:  

The City has set up declaration options for residents who require accessibility related supports, and for those without access to the internet or digital devices – like computers, tablets and other hand-held devices:


  • Call Revenue Services at 613-580-2444 and select option 3 to complete a declaration over the phone, or to book an in-person appointment at the Mary Pitt Centre at 100 Constellation Drive.

  • Call 613-580-2400 to contact the City using Canada Video Relay Service. The service uses internet and mobile phone technologies to connect the caller with real-time sign language interpretation.

Manotick Truck Traffic Update

MVCA's Truck Study was released in the fall of 2021.  It reported MVCA observations of truck volume through the village.  The action was taken due to resident frustration over the lack of progress toward ways to mitigate volumes and the negative impact it has on students at Manotick Public school, seniors living on Bridge Street and residents in the area.  

MVCA has been working for years to find solutions including lobbying for the extension of Earl Armstrong Road, ensuring any new warehouse projects included an assessment of traffic impacts on villages and starting the process of addressing this through the development of the new Transportation Master Plan.  

In 2021, we sent our report to the Mayor, City Councillors and media. We also encouraged residents to write to the Mayor and many residents did that.

MVCA is looking forward to working with the new Councillors toward some resolution to our local issues.
