Qualico Starts Distributing City of Winnipeg Impact Fee Refunds to Customers

Winnipeg, MB – In January of 2018, leaders of the homebuilding and development industry asked the court to rule on the legitimacy of the City of Winnipeg’s Impact Fee. In July 2020, the court ruled the fee to be invalid and for fees collected to be returned to those that paid them.

On November 30, the City of Winnipeg announced their intent to issue refund payments. After a process that required an extensive amount of time, energy and resources, Qualico is pleased to see this next step.

Qualico’s home builders, Broadview Homes, Kensington Homes, Sterling Homes, Foxridge Homes and StreetSide Developments, have received refunds from the City of Winnipeg. With over 1,000 individual addresses affected by the impact fee, we are working diligently to process our customers' refunds. From the outset, our builders ensured the impact fees were documented with full transparency in the purchase agreements providing clarity for our customers. We are pleased that during such a tumultuous time, we can return this money to our customers. 

With this resolution comes an opportunity to move forward. As an industry leader, Qualico is committed to collaborating with the City, working together to plan for our community’s future so that we can ensure we grow responsibly while providing the housing and infrastructure our city and its residents need and want. 

Individuals with questions regarding their specific refunds are encouraged to contact their home builder for more information.
