The Draft PRC Fees & Charges Bylaw and Policy Framework’s goal is to set out a structured approach for the City to get the most out of its investment in public services and facilities, treat community groups and users equitably, be transparent, defendable and understandable to all.

Subsidies for individual PRC programs are determined by the amount it costs to provide the service with a goal to make it easy for residents to access programs and activities; support a healthy lifestyle and get residents actively participating in all-inclusive programming.

An annual review of PRC Fees and Charges means that the City can keep key policies up to date and ensure an open, consistent and fair approach to setting fees and charges for services. By reviewing our fees and charges regularly, we can ensure that the process aligns with Council’s priorities and strategic goals and the priorities identified in the 2018 PRC Master Plan.

On May 15, 2019, Council approved a two-phased approach to the updating of the Fees and Charges Bylaw and the Policy. Phase One has been completed including a Policy update. The planned fee increase for September 1, 2020 was deferred due to COVID-19 and the closure of indoor and outdoor public facilities.
