Development charges by-laws and rates

City Council enacted the current Development Charges By-law on June 19, 2019. Every five years the City is required to update the by-law.

The Region of Peel and School Boards have their own development charges by-laws. The City collects development charges on behalf of the Region of Peel, GO Transit, the Peel District School Board and Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board.

Every five years the City is required to update its Development Charges By-law by preparing a Development Charges Background Study. The study contains detailed information on how development charges will be used to fund upcoming capital projects.
