Education Development Charges

The Education Act and Ontario Regulation 20/98 provides school boards, across the province of Ontario, with the authority to imposed Education Development Charges (EDCs).  Durham District School Board has had an EDC By-law in place since January 1, 1995.  The current EDC By-law is the sixth By-law approved by the Board. 

EDCs provide a source of funding for growth-related education land costs which are not funded by capital grant allocations under the Province’s capital funding model.  

EDCs are imposed on all development and redevelopment of lands as outlined in the EDC By-law.
