At the end of February, the provincial government released its new Provincial Policy Statement (PPS). If members recall, OPPI provided its recommendations back in the fall during the consultation period.
The PPS sets the rules for land use planning in Ontario and guides decision-making to manage growth and development, while protecting the environment, public health and safety.
OPPI will continue to work with members and the government on the implementation of the new PPS. If you are interested to learn more about OPPI's response to the PPS or have recommendations on how we can support members on implementing the new PPS, please reach us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
