Liberal bill would automatically increase user fees for federal services by rate of inflation

Treasury Board President Scott Brison has introduced legislation that would hike hundreds of federal user fees by millions of dollars

The Liberal government has introduced a bill that would significantly increase the fees that Canadians pay for a variety of federal services, such as campsites, fishing licences and passports.
In an omnibus budget bill brought forward Tuesday, the government proposes a new Service Fees Act that would automatically hike hundreds of fees by the level of inflation each year.
The move would also make it much easier for departments to apply for fee increases to better match the cost of providing services to individual Canadians and businesses. The proposed law is slated to come into effect April 1 next year.   Full Story Here
