Ontario Municipal Board Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. O.28: Proposed New Fees Regulation
O. Reg. 888/90
Bill or Act:
Ontario Municipal Board Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. O.28
Summary of Decision:
The regulation was filed with the Registrar of Regulations June 9, 2016.
March 18, 2016
Summary of Proposal:
The proposed new regulation would set out a flat fee structure for the Ontario Municipal Board and increase the fee to institute a new proceeding from $125 to $300.
A reduced fee of $25 will continue to apply to:
• each additional consent appeal filed by the same appellant in relation to connected consent applications.
• each additional variance appeal filed by the same appellant in relation to connected variance applications.
OMB fees, which are deposited in to the Consolidated Revenue Fund, have remained the same for approximately 25 years. The proposed fee increase to institute a new proceeding would allow the OMB to recover approximately 8% of operating costs, up from 3% at present.
If approved, the new regulation would come into force on July 1, 2016 and the current Fees regulation O. Reg. 888/90 would be revoked.
