MNRF Will Not Increase Aggregate Fees and Royalties on July 1, 2017

June 16, 2017 at 3:02 PM

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry has issued a notice to all licence holders under the ARA with respect to aggregate fee and royalty increases that were proposed to begin July 1, 2017.  The Ministry received many comments indicating concerns regarding the July 1st implementation date and has therefore revised its proposal as a response to these concerns. 

MNRF’s new proposal would ensure that increases to annual fees on aggregate produced on or after July 1st, 2017, would not be coming into force on the date proposed. This means that fees would not be increased on aggregate produced during 2017.

Please see the full notice below.
