The Ontario Liberal government is increasing the application fee for filing to the Ontario Municipal Board to $300 from its present $125 level.
The proposal is in the form of a new Ontario Regulation released last week.
The new fee takes effect on July 1, 2016.
“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.”, the government states.
