The Provincial Policy Statement, 2014 (the "PPS, 2014") is now in effect, as of April 30, 2014. It replaces the Provincial Policy Statement that was issued in March 2005 (the "PPS, 2005").
For planning matters commenced on or after January 1, 2007, land use decisions made on or after April 30, 2014 must be consistent with the PPS, 2014. This includes decisions of municipal councils, local boards, planning boards, ministers of the Crown and ministries, boards, commissions and agencies of the government, including the Ontario Municipal Board.
