The SSTC is one source of revenue for the SSSF. Upon receipt of an approved development permit, the successful applicant must pay applicable charges. All monies collected are deposited into the SSSF and used to build new major sanitary trunk sewers under the approved Sanitary Servicing Strategy plan. Charges are applied to all new developments and all redevelopments that increase the land use intensity of the area.

For Redevelopment/Expansion (Residential, Commercial, Industrial, or Institutional)

Charges are calculated by the equation A minus B, where:
A = the Sanitary Sewer Trunk Charge that should be paid by the new development based on the rate applicable to that particular development.
B = charge paid, or would have been paid, by existing development on the site.

If A minus B results in zero or negative amount, no payment or refund is applicable.

Illustrative Example

For a new 15 suite apartment built on the sites of 3 existing single family residential houses

 New dwelling units (15): $1,222 x 15= $18,330  (A)
 Demolished dwelling units (3): $1,712 x 3=  $5,136 (B)
 SSTC charge=  $13,194 (A-B)

Note: SSTC charges applicable to each development permit will be confirmed by the Development Officer at time of application.

Charges for past years are listed in the Historical Rates sheet.
