Modernization Opportunities for Ontario’s Building Permit Process
One of the most important things MPAC does is transform new development and building construction into assessment that provides taxation revenue – it’s a critical part of our daily work to support Ontario municipalities.
A key ingredient in this work is the collection of building permit and plan information. How this information is gathered and the speed at which it can be collected, impacts how fast MPAC can deliver new assessment and revenue to its municipal partners.
With the pandemic, MPAC had to work with municipalities to adapt how we collect this important information. We launched an online portal for the collection of building plans, supported some municipalities in their adoption of new e-permitting software, and worked to identify new ways to support the modernization of the building permit process.
Join Mary Dawson-Cole, Regional Manager, who will discuss some of MPAC’s learnings during the pandemic, insights we’ve gathered from our building permit data, and a number of the initiatives we are exploring to support municipalities and the Province in the modernization of the building permit process.
There will be time for your ideas and questions.
