CME has been having meetings with political and social service staff concerning industrial property tax reforms for Ontario’s manufacturing sector.
In the fall, we identified this as a top issue in our Industrie 2030 manufacturing strategy for the province. There are 3 things we are after. First is the elimination of highest and best use provision (already had success). Second is to reform the way development charges are applied. Third is to reduce industrial property tax rates.
We are continuing to form a working group on this issue so if you are interested, please contact Alex Greco, Director, Manufacturing Policy.
