Summary of Proposal:
Amendments to the City of Toronto Act, 2006, O. Reg. 611/06, and the Municipal Act, 2001, O. Reg. 333/07 would remove certain restrictions imposed upon municipalities with respect to Administrative Monetary Penalties (AMPS) for parking violations, including the $100 limit on penalties and the inability to enforce offences in relation to accessible parking through AMPS. The purpose of the regulations is to assist the City of Toronto and other municipalities to regulate the flow of traffic and use of land, by promoting compliance with their by-laws respecting the parking, standing or stopping of motor vehicles. The proposed amendments would make two other housekeeping amendments to each regulation. First, it would repeal s. 12(3) of the regulations, which currently specifies that administrative fees, such as late payment fees, can be added to the AMP above the $100 maximum. Subsection 12(3) is unnecessary when the $100 maximum is revoked. Second, the proposed regulation would repeal s. 9(5) of the regulations, which currently provides a two-year limitation period for filing a certificate of default. The same limitation period was removed from the

POA by the Good Government Act, 2009, S.O. 2009, c. 33, Sched. 4, s. 1(44). Removing the limitation period from the regulations would align them with the POA, Criminal Code of Canada, Statutory Powers Procedure Act, and Limitations Act, 2002.
