Who pays DCCs?

DCCs are paid by applicants for:

  • Subdivision approval to create single family lots
  • Building permits to construct multi-family, commercial, industrial, and institutional development

Note: developments are exempt from DCCs when the value of work authorized at building permit does not exceed $150,000 as per the DCC Bylaw. The Local Government Act specifies additional provisions for DCC exemptions. See front counter staff for full details.
