The Top Aggregate Producing Municipalities of Ontario (TAPMO)
As an association representing aggregate rich municipalities, TAPMO is committed to working with industry partners and provincial decision-makers to develop a long-term, practical approach to aggregate extraction in Ontario that will benefit all stakeholders.
To ensure that industry pays its fair share of property taxes and municipal taxpayers are not unfairly subsidizing aggregate operations through inaccurate property assessments.
Working with industry and government stakeholders to promote programs, policies and regulations that are responsive to the needs of area municipalities.
To ensure that a fair aggregate levy is transferred to municipalities to repair roads and provide programs to promote recycling and rehabilitation of abandoned pits and quarries.
To align community, industry and provincial goals and develop a proactive and positive set of local municipal criteria for extractive rezoning in line with provincial criteria.
