Proposed Amendment to O. Reg. 210/11 under the Ontario Infrastructure and Lands Corporation Act, 2011
O.Reg. 210/11: General
Bill or Act:
Ontario Infrastructure and Lands Corporation Act, 2011
Summary of Proposal:
The Ministry of Infrastructure is proposing to bring forward a regulatory amendment that would enable Ontario Infrastructure and Lands Corporation (Infrastructure Ontario) to provide realty advice and services to entities in the broader public sector, such as entities that have some measure of governmental control provided through the appointment of a board member or trustee, public entities that are regular transfer payment recipients from the Government of Ontario, municipalities, school boards, post-secondary educational institutions, local boards, community health centres, hospitals, and boards of health. Infrastructure Ontario's advice and services would assist entities in optimizing planning and management outcomes for the broader public sector's real estate.
Infrastructure Ontario's objects are set out in subsection 4 (1) of the Ontario Infrastructure and Lands Corporation Act, 2011 (OILCA). Among the objects, clause 5 permits Infrastructure Ontario to provide advice and services related to real property to public sector organizations prescribed under clause 36 (1) (b) of the OILCA for the purposes prescribed under clause 36 (1) (c) of the OILCA, when directed to do so in writing by the Minister. The proposed regulation would prescribe public sector organizations for whom Infrastructure Ontario could provide advice and services and for what purposes.
Among the objects, clause 10 permits Infrastructure Ontario to engage in other related activities as the Lieutenant Governor in Council may prescribe under clause 36 (1) (d). A new object is proposed to be prescribed under clause 10 to allow Infrastructure Ontario to provide advice and services to public entities that have some measure of government control, community health centres and certain transfer payment recipients, subject to written ministerial direction.
The proposed regulation would permit Infrastructure Ontario to assist the broader public sector in multiple points of engagement to support different organizations' realty projects and planning services.
