In July 2020, the Building Transit Faster Act, 2020 (BTFA) came into force introducing measures that support the accelerated completion of the government's four priority transit projects. Many of the measures are intended as a back-stop, with Metrolinx expected to make every reasonable effort to negotiate.

The Ministry of Transportation (MTO) has delegated powers to Metrolinx, with conditions, in order to expedite transit construction including delegation relating to corridor development permits, the ability to enter land, compensation, enforcement and administrative functions. It is expected that Metrolinx's use of these functions would help the Province meet its commitment to deliver these projects on accelerated timelines.
