Development Committee

The TPRA restricts its involvement to issues that either:

  • have the potential to set a negative precedent for future development within the boundaries of the TPRA, or

  • development proposals that would negatively affect TPRA residents.

The TPRA will not take sides in disputes between neighbours unless they meet one of the two criteria noted above.  In the interest of fairness, The TPRA Development Committee will make the identical information available to all parties.

Contact TPRA if you have a concern or an immediate issue.


Ontario’s New Bill 23

What is Bill 23? Bill 23 or the “More Homes Built Faster Act, 2022” was introduced by the Government of Ontario on October 25, 2022 and passed on November 28, 2022. The government's stated intention behind this bill is to support Ontario's Housing Supply Action Plan to increase the amount of housing in the province.


Unfortunately the bill will have detrimental impact on the influence residential land owners in Toronto will have in the extent and type of residential development that will get build within their neighborhoods. It will greatly limit the roles and power of Residential Associations in Toronto.


The following is a statement regarding Bill 23 from Jaye Robinson’s December 2022 Newsletter:


The Concerning Impacts of Bill 23 for the City of Toronto

On November 28, the Provincial legislature passed Bill 23, More Homes Built Faster Act, which will have significant and far-reaching impacts for the City of Toronto. While housing affordability remains a top priority, I am very concerned about how the bill will significantly limit the City's ability to secure much-needed infrastructure, protect rental housing stock, preserve heritage, uphold environmental standards, provide parkland, and enhance the public realm.
In their analysis, City staff found that Bill 23 weakens or eliminates the City's ability to secure new, affordable units and protect Toronto's existing rental housing stock. The legislation will also limit the tools the City uses to build complete communities supported by adequate infrastructure and remove municipal authority to make planning decisions within city borders. It will gut protections for built and natural heritage sites, potentially leaving thousands of properties vulnerable to demolition.
In its current form, Bill 23 will significantly decrease developer contributions to local infrastructure, parkland, and community amenities. Over the next year alone, City staff have identified that the bill could cost Toronto approximately $230 million in lost revenue, and up to $2 billion over the next decade. The Province has recently committed to "ensuring the City of Toronto is made whole," but this represents a departure from the long-held principle that growth pays for growth and instead shifts costs to taxpayers.
My office has prepared a webpage with more information about the impacts of Bill 23 and a list of Provincial contacts, which you can access here.


The TPRA is working with our city councilor, Jaye Robinson and with Geoff Kettel, co-chair of the Federation of North Toronto Residents Association, to determine appropriate roles and responses to Bill 23 that resident’s associations can play going forward. We will be arranging email blasts to all TPRA members on or email list inviting you to e-meetings with guest speakers best positioned to keep us informed and advise us on a preferred course of action.

The Federation of North Toronto Residents Associations (FoNTRA) website has a wealth of information
