Affecting Change within the Provincial Policy, Funding and Regulatory Context

Staff will continue asking for changes to provincial policy and funding practices to ensure that the TDSB can provide adequate space for students in intensifying urban areas. This includes changes to the provincial funding model to support the construction of new school capacity in advance of new developments being fully occupied as well as the construction of flexible space to address growth needs over time.

Staff will continue to ask the Government of Ontario to amend the Education Development Charges (EDCs) regulation (Ontario Regulation 20/98) under the Education Act to allow the TDSB to collect EDCs to help support urgent school infrastructure needs and reduce overcrowding in high-growth areas.
