2017 Development Charges Bylaw Review
The City of Toronto is conducting a review of its development charges bylaw. The Provincial Development Charges Act requires municipalities to adopt a development charges bylaw every five years, if not sooner.
To renew its DC by-law, the City must complete a comprehensive development charges background study to forecast the city’s future residential and non-residential growth, and to identify the related infrastructure needs and costs.
