CELA is thoroughly assessing the proposals contained in Bill 23 and will post resources as we develop them.
CELA recommends that consultation cease on a proposed regulation under O Reg 568/21 and that no decision be made, until such time as additional detail (including a draft regulation) and an adequate comment period are provided to allow the public to meaningfully participate in the decision‐making, pursuant to the intent of Ontario’s Environmental Bill of Rights, 1993.
