Development Charges

Municipalities in Ontario use Development Charges (DCs) to recover growth related capital costs associated with residential and non-residential growth. In accordance with the Development Charges Act, DCs are collected at the building permit stage to help the City pay for municipal services needed to support the new development. These services include, water, wastewater, emergency services, roads and more.

Development Charges (DC’s) rates will be increased for the period from July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019 and can be viewed by selecting the Rates heading below.
