    CLOCA has put forward a proposed schedule of charges to be approved at the CLOCA board of director's meeting on Tuesday, November 17.

    View the schedule of fees

    The CLOCA board of directors considered the comprehensive update to their fee schedules in 2015, the principle of annual inflationary increases was endorsed in order to keep the fee schedules current and to avoid future large year over year increases to the fees.

    The revised fee schedules provide for a 2% inflationary increase proposed to be effective on January 1, 2021 (the previous increase for 2020 was 2.5%).  No new fees are proposed and the structure of the fee schedules is proposed to remain unaltered.

    A revision is proposed to clarify that peer review fees may be required pursuant to CLOCA's 2014 board approved Policy and Procedural Document.  The use of a peer reviewer by CLOCA has been very rare and is focused on Lake Ontario coastal engineering issues.

    If you have any concerns about the proposed annual inflationary increase, please email Stacey.
