The City of Gaspé has experienced rapid growth in its economy in recent years. The demand for workers increases from year to year and the housing vacancy rate is 1,2% for the whole city and almost 0% in Gaspé, downtown. The City of Gaspé therefore obtained permission in December 2019 to grant financial incentives for the construction of rental housing or for the acquisition of properties in certain districts of Gaspé.
The City of Gaspé has adopted a by-law allowing it to grant tax credits for the construction of rental housing:
This program aims to help the acquisition of properties in district 1 (L'Anse-à-Valleau in Petit-Cap) and in part of district 3 (L'Anse-au-Griffon in Cap-aux-Os), in order to revitalize these districts with the arrival of new families who will decide to acquire their main residence there.
For more information, please contact administrative services at 418-368-2404 ext. 8545
The tax credit assistance program to promote the construction of intergenerational housing aims to allow families to adapt existing homes to accommodate immediate family members in the same dwelling.
The program has also improved and widened eligibility so that the occupant is a grandfather and / or grandmother, son or daughter, grandson or granddaughter of the owner (s) place of only father and / or mother, stepfather and / or stepmother.
All details are also available by contacting the Department of Planning, Environment and Town Planning.
