Toronto Catholic District Board Education Development Charges
The Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) is currently undertaking a review of its DC rates, with public meetings scheduled to be held in May and June of 2018. For more information on the TCDSB DC by-law review, please consult the TCDSB DC website at the link below.
Education Development Charges are imposed by the Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) under the Education Act and funds site acquisitions for new and expanded schools. The City of Toronto collects education development charges on behalf of the TCDSB, as required by the Education Act.

At its meeting on June 11, 2015, the TCDSB amended By-law 2013 No. 178 to implement the current rates which have been in effect since July 1, 2015.
