Presentation: Bill 23 Passed… What Happens Next?

Webinar originally aired on June 15, 2023

In the fall of 2022, the Ontario government passed Bill 23, More Homes Built Faster Act, 2022. Along with a number of changes to the Greenbelt and the Ontario Wetland Evaluation System, the reforms were arguably the biggest change to land use planning and environment protection CELA has seen in decades.

Now that the Bill has passed, many of us are left wondering – what’s next? What does this mean for our communities? What can we do to help?

CELA lawyers Theresa McClenaghan and Jacqueline Wilson presented at a webinar hosted by the Markham Public Library on Bill 23 and the associated impacts it will have on our communities, including climate resilience, community engagement, affordable housing, and protecting water and natural heritage. The webinar was also a review of other recent land use and housing law proposals.
