Google Translate Frequently Asked Questions

Legal Proceedings to Gain Access to Education Development Charges

The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) started legal proceedings challenging Section 10 of Ontario Reg. 20/98 under the Education Act, which prevents school boards from collecting Education Development Charges (EDCs) if they have excess space across their system regardless of their growth-related infrastructure needs in high-growth areas. If successful, these amendments would allow the TDSB to collect EDCs.

Trustees have voted to broaden the Board’s strategy to gain access to EDCs on December 13, 2017, following a report presented by the TDSB Legal Department.

In addition, the TDSB keeps advocating for access to EDCs through other channels, including direct discussions with the Ontario Government. The TDSB is also requesting for the provincial government to amend the Education Act to allow greater flexibility as to the use of EDC revenue.
