In 2007, the famous Canadian real estate company en: Minto Developments Inc. appealed to the city authorities with a petition for the construction of approximately 1,800 new residential buildings in the territory of Manotik. In early 2008, the number was reduced as a result of discussions with the urban development group in the Ottawa Municipality, numerous public meetings and consultations with local residents, but soon the city authorities finally rejected the Minto company's plan, indicating that it was contrary to the city’s general development plan. Manotik, and moreover, contradicts the preservation of the “agrarian nature” of Manotik. The Minto Company filed an appeal against the decision of the city authorities to the Ontario Municipal Tribunal, which overturned their decision and allowed the construction to begin.
