Ministry of Environment - What is a Private Water Utility?
A water utility under the Water Utility Act is a person/business who owns or operates equipment or facilities for the delivery of domestic water service to five (5) or more persons or to a corporation for compensation. Private water utilities are usually created by developers to serve rural land development where community water service is required for subdivision approval and where there is no other water purveyor in the area that can provide service. A Water Utility is not a local authority such as a municipality, improvement district or local service area of a regional district and therefore not eligible for government funding such as infrastructure grants.

Ministry of Community Services Free Crown Grant/Nominal Rent Tenure Program
Provincial Context
Government has historically provided Crown land to local governments, public agencies and community organizations to support public purposes. This land has been provided at less than market value through a Crown Grant or Nominal Rent Tenure. This promotes economic and social development through providing access to Crown land for public facilities and community infrastructure.

InfraGuide is a national network of experts and a growing collection of best practice publications for core infrastructure - offering the best in Canadian experience and knowledge of infrastructure.  With founders - the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, the National Research Council and Infrastructure Canada, and our founding member the Canadian Public Works Association - that help municipalities make informed, smart decisions that sustain our quality of life.
