Local Improvement Charges Regulation Amendments

On June 22, 2012, the Columbia Institute made a submission to the Municipal Finance Policy Branch at the Ontario Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing in a response for public feedback on proposal number 11-MAH011 – Local Improvement Charges Regulation Amendments Under the Municipal Act and the City of Toronto Act. 
The submission focused specifically on the role municipalities could play in financing and supporting residential energy efficiency retrofits and recommended that energy efficiency improvements and equipment be named specifically eligible for LIC-based financing in the proposed regulations.
