Provide your input for the fee setting methodology project


There is still time to get your submissions in for the fee setting methodology project. In announcing this project on March 17, we shared a list of questions about the methodology, which we are seeking your feedback on:

  1. What are the key principles you would like the fee setting methodology to reflect?
  2. What are the key issues that you think need to be addressed during the review, based on your experience with the fee methodology over the last few years? 
  3. What aspects of the methodology strike you as being most robust and useful? Why?
  4. What aspects of the methodology do you consider need improvement, or that should be removed altogether? Why?

If you would like to make a contribution to this discussion by providing feedback on any or all of these questions, or if there is anything else you would like to share with us in the context of the fee methodology, please send your submissions to feemethodologyreview@cssalliance.ca by April 30.  


If you would like to meet with the Steward Consultation Committee to present your feedback in person, please include your request in your submission and we will follow up with you once the Committee's schedule is set.


Please keep in mind that any feedback you have provided through previous consultations on the Stewardship Ontario fee setting methodology, have been retained and are already serving as inputs into this project.
