TEMPLATE Letter for Members to Use to Submit Responses to ERO Posting on Growth Plan February 13, 2019
The government has submitted a proposal to make Modifications to O. Reg. 311/06 (Transitional Matters - Growth Plans) made under the Places to Grow Act, 2005 to implement the Proposed Amendment to the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, 2017. OSSGA has made the point to the government that the current policy framework is not working. Approvals for new mineral aggregate operations in Southern Ontario are taking up to 10 years to complete the process. There are too many overlapping policies and inconsistent approaches between the Provincial Plans, Regional Official Plans, Local Official Plans and Conservation Authority policies regarding the management of this essential non-renewable resource.

Axle Weight Moratorium Update: MTO Measure Ups

July 20, 2016 at 9:08 AM

As a reminder, Phase 2 of the enforcement of axle weights by the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) will begin on August 1st, 2016.  

In the last OSSGA communication, dated July 13, 2016 we had suggested that if you are affected by this change to update your vehicle’s white sheet with the MTO. This will ensure that you have the correct information when loading at sites and when the vehicle is weighed by the MTO.

If your white sheet is up to date, accurate and valid, there is no need to obtain a new one.  If you do require an update to your vehicle’s white sheet from the MTO, you are to contact the MTO’s district enforcement offices.  Drivers or producers can call their closest office to arrange for a new measure up. We have attached the list of offices for your convenience.

If you have any questions please contact Mike Scott ( at OSSGA
