Regulation - LGIC
Bill or Act:
Provincial Parks and Conservation Reserves Act, 2006
Summary of Decision:
A decision was made to proceed with the proposal. The proposal was implemented by an amendment to O. Reg. 347/07 (General Regulation) by O. Reg. 347/16. This regulation was filed by the Registrar of Regulations on October 21, 2016 and published in the Ontario Gazette on October 21, 2016.
June 3, 2015
Summary of Proposal:
There are presently 303 private cottage lots in Algonquin Provincial Park. Tenure for these cottage lots currently expires at the end of 2017. The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) has proposed a policy that would allow these cottage lots to remain in the park until December 31, 2038 (EBR Registry Number 01-7289).
Currently, Ontario Regulation 347/07 (Provincial Parks: General Provisions) prohibits the occupation of cottage lots in Algonquin Provincial Park beyond 2017. Therefore, as part of the proposal to extend tenure, MNRF is considering an amendment to Ontario Regulation 347/07 that would enable occupation of existing cottage lots to extend beyond 2017.
