Dear North Toronto Basketball Families.

Recently, we were informed by the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) Permit office that our gym permit fees would be increasing. We were surprised and disappointed by the late notification in mid August that not only would the fees be raised, but that we had been moved into another classification. The net effect of the changes is that our permit fees have increased by almost 400% for this upcoming season!
While there had been some prior discussion regarding the fee increases, the size and late notification of such has come as a surprise. As you may be aware from news reports, other organizations that provide sports and recreational opportunities for their respective communities have also seen increases of this magnitude.

Rest assured that we are working with Basketball Ontario and other organizations that have been adversely impacted by the TDSB’s unilateral action to try and seek a better outcome than the one being imposed on us and others in our community.

As a result of the TDSB permit fee increases, the North Toronto Basketball Association will be running a deficit this year. This will be offset by a numberof measures including using our surplus that we have diligently built up over the years, increasing Rep Fees, optimizing gym usage and re-examining other revenue generating activities to try and maintain the affordability of our community sports offering. As House League fees have already been paid, we will not increase them this year but will have to moderately increase them next year.

In addition, we remind you that the North Toronto Basketball Association offers sponsorship opportunities that will not only help us defray part of these cost increases but also allow you the opportunity to promote your business to the North Toronto community and beyond. Please check out the sponsorship page on our web site.

We thank you for your cooperation in this manner. We strive to bring the best possible House League and Rep basketball programs at a reasonable cost to all.
We would also ask you to have your voices heard by contacting our School Board Trustees and other influential members that can influence this decision. The contact information for the trustees is as follows:
