What does final acceptance or assumption of new Subdivision mean?
Final acceptance and/or assumption of a Subdivision occurs when the Municipality assumes responsibility for the maintenance of all municipal services from the Subdivider. This typically occurs within three to six years after the registration of the Subdivision, or when all the Subdivider's requirements have been fulfilled. Until this happens, the Subdivider is responsible for all municipal and regional services and maintenance of the streets with the exception of snow clearance and garbage pickup. Unassumed roads are open to the public and subject to conventional rules of the road under the Highway Traffic Act including parking regulations.
