OSSGA Response to OMB Review January 4, 2017 at 9:12 AM
As part of a suite of reviews, including the Coordinated Provincial Plan Review, the Ontario government published a discussion paper in October on its review of the Ontario Municipal Board. The paper states that the "OMB Review focuses on the scope of land use planning matters that may come before the Board and the effectiveness of how the board operates." OSSGA submitted our comments to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs (MAH) on Dec 16th outlining our belief that the OMB plays an important role in the planning process and it must retain powers to ensure it can uphold the objectives of PPS 2014. OSSGA comments can be seen at the link below.
Minister Kathleen McGarry stood in the House today to introduce the long awaited Aggregate Resources and Mining Modernization Act (ARMMA), a bill the government is putting forward to amend and modernize both the Aggregate Resources Act (ARA) and Mining Act.
This document provides an overview of the proposed changes to the four plans. The proposed revised plans (see below) contain the revised policies and should be consulted for precise wording.
