Submission: Ministry Proposals to Exempt Harmful Activities from Licensing Requirements

The Ontario Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks posted four notices on the Environmental Registry of Ontario, proposing to exempt certain waste management systems, stormwater management, and water-taking from licensing requirements.

CELA is deeply concerned about the impact potential impacts of these proposals. We recently sent a letter, endorsed by 13 environmental, conservation, and civil society organizations, to the Ministry outlining our concerns and asking them NOT to proceed with the proposed changes.
