This consultation was open from:
October 3, 2017
to November 17, 2017

Decision summary

We decided not to release the proposed guide because there are proposed changes to the Provincial Policy Statement coming soon. We will make further changes to the proposed guide once the new Provincial Policy Statement is released. We will consult on those further changes.

Decision details

We decided not to release the proposed guide because there are proposed changes to the Provincial Policy Statement coming as part of Ontario’s Housing Supply Action Plan. The Ontario Heritage Act has also been amended as part of the Housing Supply Action Plan.

Increasing housing supply, supporting jobs and streamlining development approvals are top priorities for the government.

We will make further changes to the proposed guide once the new Provincial Policy Statement is released, and once the amended Ontario Heritage Act is proclaimed. We will consult on those further changes.

The comments received through consultation on the draft guide in 2017 will be considered and incorporated as appropriate into the updated guide.

Proposal details

Description of policy

The Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport is proposing a new document: A Guide to Cultural Heritage Resources in the Land Use Planning Process. This is a revised version of the 2006 infosheet series, Heritage Resources in the Land Use Planning Process.

The proposed guide will help those involved in the land use planning process in Ontario understand the changes to the cultural heritage policies in the Provincial Policy Statement, 2014.

Purpose of policy

The proposed guide will provide advice and guidance on best practices in applying the cultural heritage policies in the Provincial Policy Statement, 2014.

The guide will also articulate how the conservation, wise use and management of cultural heritage and archaeological resources are in the provincial interest. It will explain why the conservation, wise use and management of these resources is an important and necessary part of land use planning and development.

The Provincial Policy Statement, 2014 includes new and strengthened policies related to the conservation of cultural heritage resources, Indigenous engagement regarding cultural heritage and municipal cultural planning. The guide updates an earlier publication to reflect these changes and to provide further guidance on implementing these policies.

The intended audiences include:

  • planning professionals seeking to put municipal official plans into practice;
  • members of the public seeking to understand the links between land use planning and the conservation of cultural heritage resources; and
  • indigenous communities seeking to understand the role they have in Ontario’s land use planning framework.

The purposes of this Proposal Notice are to:

  1. Advise the public that the province is proposing to develop a draft guide regarding the cultural heritage policies in the Provincial Policy Statement, 2014; and,
  2. Provide 45 days for the public to review and comment on the draft guide by submitting their comments in writing through the Environmental Registry.

Public consultation

This proposal was posted for a 45 day public review and comment period starting October 03, 2017. Comments were to be received by November 17, 2017.

All comments received during the comment period are being considered as part of the decision-making process by the Ministry.

Please Note: All comments and submissions received have become part of the public record.
