TDS lawyers John Stefaniuk (Municipal Law, Real Estate Development Law, and Environmental Law) and Antoine Hacault (Municipal Law, Expropriation Law, Litigation, and Administrative Law) and Lindsay Warelis (Environmental Law and Administrative Law) acted on behalf of the Manitoba Homebuilders Association and the Urban Development Institute (Manitoba Division) in a successful court application to have The City of Winnipeg’s Impact Fee By-law declared invalid. In a 119 page decision, the Manitoba Court of Queen’s Bench ordered Winnipeg to repay upwards of $30 Million in Impact Fees that had been collected since the implementation of the By-Law in May of 2017, to developers, builders, and homeowners that had paid the fee, together with interest.
