The Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing is proposing two regulations under the Municipal Act, 2001 and the City of Toronto Act, 2006 that will give the heads of council of Toronto and Ottawa more authority:

Proposed Minister's Regulations to help bring the Strong Mayors, Building Homes Act, 2022 into effect.
If proclaimed, the Strong Mayors, Building Homes Act, 2022 would provide new Minister's regulation making authorities. The Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing is proposing regulations under the Municipal Act (MA) and City of Toronto Act (COTA). The Act and proposed regulations would give the head of council (HOC) of Toronto and Ottawa more authority to move forward on shared provincial-municipal priorities.

Proposed regulations to prescribe provincial priorities related to the Strong Mayors, Building Homes Act, 2022
If proclaimed, the Strong Mayors, Building Homes Act, 2022 would provide a LGIC regulation making authority to prescribe provincial priorities. The Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing is proposing LGIC regulations under the Municipal Act, 2001 and City of Toronto Act, 2006 to support implementation. If proclaimed, the Act and the proposed regulations would give the mayors of Toronto and Ottawa more authority to move forward on shared provincial-municipal priorities.

It is proposed that regulations will be in effect on November 15, 2022. While at this time the legislation and proposed regulations will only apply to Toronto and Ottawa, the government has indicated that these additional powers may be expanded to other municipalities.
