The new Official Community Plan supports the efficient use of land to provide social, economic and ecological benefits across the City. This includes policy to encourage more childcare facilities in areas with higher concentrations of housing, including in multi-family and mixed-use areas.

Currently, childcare facilities for more than eight children are only allowed in civic / institutional zones and in one site specific ("comprehensive development" or CD-zone), while childcare facilities for eight or fewer children are allowed in detached residential homes.
