​​​​​​​​​Municipalities in Ontario use Development Charges (DCs) to recover costs associated with residential and non-residential growth. Development charges fund growth-related capital costs for soft services, like library and fire services, recreation and parking and hard services like engineering and infrastructure. The Development Charges Act is the statutory basis that governs development charges.
