Environmental assessment, Impact Assessment Act, Bill C-69
In February 2018, the federal government tabled Bill C-69, which contains a new Impact Assessment Act to replace the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012. At the same time, it released two consultation papers on supporting regulations.
This brief, submitted to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency on the Consultation Paper on Information and Time Management Regulations, recommends regulatory measures to ensure that the new Impact Assessment Act restores public trust and safeguards Canadians and the environment.
