The Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) appreciates the opportunity to contribute to the Standing Committee on Finance and Economic Affairs Committee’s deliberations on Bill 57, Restoring Trust, Transparency and Accountability Act, 2018 (Bill 57).

This Bill is a collection of Schedules amending 45 pieces of legislation and is intended to implement the Government’s Fall Economic Statement. It is broad in scope and effect. AMO will focus its comments on Schedule 18, Fire Protection and Prevention Act. There are several other schedules for which we have provided comment, too.
