New OPP Billing Model for Municipalities

The new model, which takes effect January 1, 2015, reflects input from the Auditor General and municipalities to more fairly and transparently distribute policing costs.

Quick Facts

  • The OPP provides policing services to 324 Ontario municipalities.
  • The current OPP billing model was introduced in 1998 and has not been updated in 17 years.
  • The OPP acted on the Auditor General’s 2012 report in revising the billing model.
  • The average per property cost for OPP services in 2015 is estimated to be $355, compared to an average of $787 (estimated) for self-policed municipalities.
