Ontario Helping Contain Costs of Building Roads and New Homes
The Ontario government is looking to prohibit underground infrastructure owners and operators from charging fees to locate things like buried pipelines, cable and wires.
The Getting Infrastructure Built Safely Act, 2023, if passed, would prohibit charging fees for locates to:
✅ Protect public safety
✅ Keep costs down
✅ Get vital infrastructure like roads, new homes & high-speed internet built more quickly
