Commercial and Industrial CIP

Commercial and Industrial Community Improvement Plan

On June 15, 2018, Timmins Council adopted the City of Timmins Commercial & Industrial Community Improvement Plan – setting grant programs for businesses and building owners throughout the City of Timmins. The grant program's aim is to promote redevelopment of brownfield sites, encourage mining redevelopment and promote the City’s underutilized Timmins Industrial Park.  The City of Timmins has set aside $50,000 towards the Commercial & Industrial CIP.

The Commercial & Industrial CIP has three grants available which will be administered through the incentive programs:

Tax Increment Rebate
A grant to eligible individuals who undertake significant development resulting in an increase in the incremental tax value based on the pre- and post-redevelopment assessment value as determined by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC).

Environmental Study Grant
A grant to help offset the environmental study costs associated with site remediation for properties that are contaminated.

Municipal Fee Rebate
A grant which provides refunds for planning and building fees related to the development:

  • Building Permit application fees
  • Official Plan and Zoning By-Law Amendments
  • Street Occupancy Permits
  • Minor Variances
  • Consents
  • Site Plan Control Agreements

Grant application forms are available from the Community & Development Services Department. Completed, eligible applications will be reviewed and approved for funding by the Community & Development Services Department on a “first-come, first-served” basis.

Interested applicants are encouraged to speak to the CIP Coordinator, Dave St.Onge, before submitting an application to ensure eligibility and the completeness of the application.
