How does the City include preservation of historical buildings and sites into new building contracts?

Answer from CreateTO: There are 3 parts to this answer: 

  1. Developments in private ownership that contain heritage resources are subject to conditions under the Ontario Heritage Act, the Planning Act, and sometimes a municipal heritage easement agreement, in addition to the provision of a letter of credit equal to the amount of the secured conservation. Commitments are also regularly referenced in other legal instruments (e.g. Section 37 agreements) and reference/drawings within the actual Zoning-By-law may be appropriate.
  2. Properties in municipal ownership are subject to designation and alteration conditions.
  3. Properties in provincial ownership are subject to internal provincial processes, standards, and guidelines, but are not required to obtain any municipal approvals or enter into any legal agreements.
