What is the Regional Official Plan Review?
In keeping with the Government of Ontario’s Planning Act, the Region must update its Official Plan every 5 years. This mandatory update ensures that official plan policies stay current with Provincial plan and policy changes and reflect our changing community's needs.

- Incorporate new provincial legislation, regulations and policies.
- Implement new regional policy initiatives and plans.
- Have a meaningful community engagement process.
