Habitat for Humanity Greater Ottawa will break ground on its next build at Wateridge Village in the spring of 2020. Sponsored by Red Roof Foundation, the development is an 8-unit stacked townhome development centrally located on the former Canadian Forces Rockliffe Airbase, in a growing neighbourhood close to amenities.
Wateridge Village will follow Habitat Greater Ottawa’s Pathways to Homeownership Program. It is a ‘rent-to-own’ model that will convert to homeownership after a twenty-year period.

Wateridge Village will include two accessible barrier-free 3-bedroom units located on the ground floor. Accessible outdoor parking and barrier-free access leading to the entries will enable those with mobility issues to safely access the home.
Accessible housing can work for everyone, including those with physical disabilities. It also allows people to stay in their homes as their circumstances change, without expensive renovations. The Wateridge Village accessible units will feature wider door frames, open turning spaces within rooms, easy-to grab handle levers and light switches, a wheel-in shower stall and kitchen work surfaces with knee space below and adjustable storage spaces above.
Note: Families interested in the accessible units must qualify under Habitat Greater Ottawa’s Eligibility Criteria. We recognize the diversity of people with disabilities and will work with interested families on a case-by-case basis to ensure Habitat’s current accessible units adequately meet the needs of your family.
