Changes to Rates and Fees Policy

April 19, 2023

One of the roles of the Community Services Board is to review the rates and fees policy that establishes the user fees for facilities, programs and services.

The Board conducted a review of fees and charges in March. The last time changes were made to the policy was 2019. The board did review the rates in 2020 but no changes were recommended at that time. Covid-19 meant that there were no changes in 2021 and again in 2022 since the users and various clubs were just getting organized again.

Policy 2023-01 Community Services Department Fees & Charges was presented to Council at their April meeting and approved. The highlights of the policy include:

  • The fees take effect May 1, 2023.
