This is to inform you that the Minister of Public and Business Service Delivery and the Minister of Energy jointly signed a letter outlining their intention to consult on potential options that could prohibit fees being charged by members of Ontario One Call for underground infrastructure locates.
The letter also confirms that, working in partnership with Ontario One Call, the Government will consult on enhancements to the locate delivery requirements specified in the Ontario Underground Infrastructure Notification System Act, 2012, and will consider a range of options to build flexibility into the current locate delivery system, while supporting overall locate performance improvements.
The letter also confirms that the new effective date on the coming into force of the AP regulation has been pushed out a year, now coming into force on April 1, 2024.
We will share further details on this important consultation as soon as they are available.
