"On June 6, the Ontario government passed Bill 108, which it dubbed “more homes, more choice.”
Bill 108 reverses many of the provisions contained in the previous Liberal government’s Bill 139, affecting 13 Acts in a way that has many implications for both municipalities and real estate developers.
Reaction to the bill since it was unveiled last spring has been mixed. Advocacy group Environmental Defence, for example, has slammed Bill 108 for favoring developers instead of protecting the environment and ensuring more walkable and liveable communities.
So it should come as no surprise Bill 108 was a hot topic at the Ottawa Real Estate Forum on Oct. 17."
