- What do you see as the positive and negative impacts arising from the introduction of fees?
- If these fees are introduced, how will you use TC’s services differently than you have in the past, or currently are?
- What could TC do to make the introduction of fees as seamless as possible?
- Would you be interested in participating in an online information session for MOC Fee Modernization Preliminary Consultations?
- Which of the two described service standards is more meaningful to you (page 4)?
