Preliminary Review of Ontario’s Proposed Project List under the Environmental Assessment Act

The Province of Ontario has released a proposed list of projects that will be subject to comprehensive environmental assessment under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act (EAA).

CELA staff counsel Rick Lindgren has completed a preliminary review of the proposed project list – read the review here.

The public is invited to submit comments on the proposal via the Environmental Registry (ERO# 019-2377)  until November 10, 2020.

For more information on environmental assessment reforms in Ontario, read Rick’s most recent blog.

CELA will also be hosting a free, 1-hour primer that will provide an overview of the key changes, discuss the proposed EA project list regulation currently posted on the EBR Registry for public comment, and let you know what you can do to push back against these reforms.  Learn more and register here.
