Partial licence waiver supports the recovery of the province’s ski sector

Dear Valued Ski Licensees,

As Ontario’s ski sector gears up for reopening this season, the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) is pleased to announce that it is facilitating the reduction of fees by 75% for all ski device licences.

Those eligible for this financial relief include operators that did not renew or hold a license for their device in 2021/2022. Device owners are required to pay only 25% of ski lift licence fees.

Ski device owners who receive a renewal invoice without the application of the 75% waiver should wait until they receive an adjusted invoice with the waiver applied before making payment. Owners who are eligible for the fee relief and have paid the invoice prior to the adjustment will be issued a refund for the fee relief portion.

The partial device fee waiver is funded by the Ontario government and supports the continued recovery of Ontario’s ski sector from economic hardships stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, while ensuring that strong public safety standards are maintained.

This relief only applies to ski lift licences.
