Oshawa Community Benefit Charge Strategy

February 10, 2023 9:51 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

As approved by Report CF-23-02 on January 9, 2023, City staff are looking to receive feedback from the public and industry stakeholders on the proposed Community Benefits Charge (C.B.C.) Strategy.

The Community Benefits Charge is a new charge that can be collected by municipalities to ensure funding is available for a range of community services that are needed due to growth. The C.B.C. can be collected on high-density development and redevelopment of five or more storeys with ten or more residential units. Certain types of development, such as long-term care homes and hospices, retirement homes, universities, colleges and Indigenous Institutes, as well as not-for-profit housing, are exempt from the C.B.C.

In order to impose and collect the charges, the City needed to complete a C.B.C. Strategy and By-law, which provides details of the City’s increased capital needs and services based on eligible development.

The following capital needs and services are included in the City of Oshawa’s Proposed C.B.C. Strategy:

  • Development Charges Services Becoming Ineligible - Municipal Parking; and,
  • Other Capital Needs including C.B.C. Strategies, Solid Waste Management Services, Library Services, Animal Control, By-law Services, Economic Development, Information Technology and Workforce Strategic Planning.

The Proposed C.B.C. fee is shown in the following table.

Schedule “A” Community Benefits Charges

 Development Type C.B.C. per Dwelling Unit 
 2 Bedroom +   $147 
 Bachelor & 1   Bedroom   $90
