ONN’s Nonprofit Registry for Public Benefit Lands

Looking for land for your nonprofit? Thinking about buying a facility for your public benefit organization?

Did you know the Ministry of Infrastructure has surplus government land which may be available for sale to the public at market rates? This registry is the first of its kind in Ontario giving eligible not-for-profit organizations the chance to access a circulation list of surplus properties for capital planning – before they go on the open market.

This is great news for the sector!
