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.

Some of the changes enacted through Bill 108 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.

It 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 will release Regulations that will provide details on how Bill 108 will be implemented and how municipalities will transition current practices to the new legislation. More details on Bill 108 and new regulations will be posted 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.
