Why do I pay so many different fees?

TRCA charges fees for the delivery of its services, which includes acting as both a commenting body for our municipal and Regional partners, and as a regulatory approval body which issues associated permits for development. As such, we require fees to cover the true cost of the services we provide. It is also why we have two fee schedules, one for planning services which provides comments to our municipal/Regional partners under the Planning Act, and one for permitting services, providing approvals under the Conservation Authorities Act.
