Official Plan - Review and Update

The Town of Gananoque is in the process of preparing a new Official Plan. This page will be continually updated throughout the process as new documents and engagement opportunities become available. Comments and feedback are welcomed at all stages of the review process and can be emailed to or submitted using the form at the bottom of this page.


The Official Plan is a policy document that establishes the vision and goals for the community for the next 25 years. Review of the Plan ensures that policies continue to reflect the goals of the community and align with updated provincial policies and legislation.

Background Reports

The Background Report prepared by J.L. Richards & Associates provides a summary of key information from various sources (including the Census, Development Charges Background Study, and Recreation Masterplan), describes the existing provincial policy framework, summarizes existing Official Plan policies and is intended to serve as a basis for recommended policy directions and changes. Recommended policy directions and changes will be made available in draft-format for public comment and feedback prior to adoption of the plan.
