As of September 3, 2019, some of the changes to the Planning Act as a result of Bill 108 will be proclaimed (come into force).

The Province’s Bill 108, the More Homes, More Choice Act, received Royal Assent on June 6, 2019. The Bill amends 13 different statutes that impact municipalities and land use planning processes.

When Bill 108 and associated regulations come into force, it will affect the planning and financial tools to support new development in communities across Toronto (growth pays for growth) that the City uses to provide:

  • parks
  • recreation centres
  • childcare centres
  • libraries
  • subsidized housing
  • paramedic services and
  • other community infrastructure.

Bill 108 also changes where the City can require new affordable housing, how heritage buildings are conserved and how development applications are reviewed by the City and at the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT).

The Province’s current draft regulations related to Bill 108 are provided below. The commenting period for these draft regulations has now closed. The City will continue to post links to future regulations related to Bill 108 as they become available.

The City is preparing a series of fact sheets about Bill 108.  Additional fact sheets will be posted here as they become available.
