Education Development Charges (EDC) are used by school boards to fund the school site acquisitions and other site related costs to accommodate students from new development within the Region of Halton. Both residential and non-residential development in the Region of Halton are subject to EDC by the Halton Catholic District School Board and the Halton District School Board.

​Education Development Charges are collected by local municipalities on behalf of the Board, and are payable at the time of building permit issuance.

Proposed Amendment to Education Development Charge By-Law

The Halton Catholic District School Board is proposing to amend the Board’s current 2013 Education Development Charges By-Law, which came into effect on June 24, 2013. The current by-law has a term of five (5) years.

The Board will hold a public meeting on May 2, 2017, at 7:30 pm to consider the proposed amendment and to inform the public generally about the Board’s EDC proposal. At its meeting of June 20, 2017, the Board will consider adoption of a By-law that will amend the current 2013 Bylaw.

If approved, the 2015 amendment to the 2013 EDC By-law will take effect as of June 21, 2017 for the Halton Catholic District School Board and June 26, 2017 for the Halton District School Board. See below for supporting documentation:
