Development Cost Charges

City Council has adopted a Development Cost Charge (DCC) Bylaw which authorizes fees to be collected prior to Subdivision approval or the issuance of a Building Permit. The fees collected are used to fund major capital improvements to the sewer, water, drainage, and road infrastructure and the acquisition of parkland/open spaces. This page assists you in understanding Development Cost Charges and when they apply.


This brochure describes subdivision, the subdivision approval process, and where to obtain additional information.
