Land Use Planning in Ontario

Ontario has a number of laws, regulations and policies that affect land use and development across Ontario. Under the current framework, municipal and provincial officials are empowered to make decisions that not only direct growth and settlement patterns in urban and rural settings, but that also influence infrastructure, transit, agricultural lands, water resources, air quality, wildlife habitat and other natural heritage throughout the province. This collection features CELA submissions on various land use planning matters, including the right of citizens to participate in the land use planning process and to appeal inappropriate land use decisions.
