Reclamation Projects

A large amount of aggregate is being lost or is at risk of being lost due to gravel deposit sterilization throughout the province. The goal of the ASGA is to work with communities and regulatory bodies to encourage responsible development of this resource and ensure the reclamation of land following the extraction of gravel.

CAP Levy

Under the Municipal Government Act, municipalities have the ability to pass a Community Aggregate Payment (CAP) Levy bylaw to require operators to report shipments based on tonnage, and pay a levy of up to the regulated maximum rate of $0.25 per tonne of sand and gravel extracted.
