Bill 23 Next Steps

On November 30th, the Minister of Housing provided a commitment to work with municipalities to explore means to close funding gaps related to Bill 23 measures. This would commence with a third-party audit of select municipalities of their municipal finances, including reserve funds and development charge administration. It is not yet known if Ottawa will be included in this audit. As of this date, staff are not aware of any financial commitments or agreements from either the provincial or federal government to provide offsetting revenue and will monitor this.

Staff will continue to review the impact of this legislation and will update this website with changes required to programs resources and operations, including the calculations of parkland and development charges, and future impacts on infrastructure and service delivery.

Further, staff have submitted comments on regulations and bulletins posted to the Environmental Registry including the following postings, where permitted.
