The SSTC is one source of revenue for the SSSF. Upon receipt of an approved
development permit, the successful applicant must pay applicable charges. All monies collected are deposited into the SSSF and used to build new major sanitary trunk sewers under the approved Sanitary Servicing Strategy plan. Charges are applied to all new developments and all redevelopments that increase the land use intensity and sewage generated from an area.

- Residential - Premise with two dwellings where one dwelling is a secondary suite or garden suite:
$1,566 for the principal dwelling, and $693 for the secondary suite or garden suite

For redevelopment/expansion (residential, commercial, industrial or institutional)
Charges are calculated by the equation
A = the Sanitary Sewer Trunk Charge that should be paid by the new development based on the rate applicable to that particular development.
B = charge paid, or would have been paid, by existing development on the site.
B results in zero or negative amount, no payment or refund is applicable.
