Off-Site Levies

What is an Off-Site Levy?

Off-site levies are a tool that a municipality can use to pay for new infrastructure or the expansion of existing infrastructure required because of development. Off-site levies must be authorized by bylaw. Under the current Municipal Government Act (MGA), off-site levies can be collected for:

  • New or expanded facilities for the storage, transmission, treatment or supply of water;
  • New or expanded facilities for the treatment, movement or disposal of sanitary sewage;
  • New or expanded storm sewer drainage facilities;
  • New or expanded roads required for or impacted by a subdivision or development; and
  • Land required for or in connection with any of the above-described facilities.
