Environmental Assessment and Regulatory Permitting

Environmental regulatory permits are documents that are issued by a government agency under environmental legislation, which allows you to carry out an activity for a specified period of time. It is required for effective stewardship of natural resources and ensures that specific activities undertaken have regard for the environment, and other stakeholders. These can include:

  • Fisheries Act Authorizations
  • Species at Risk Act Permits
  • Lakes and Rivers Improvement Act – Location and Plans and Specification Approvals
  • Public Lands Act Work Permits
  • Environmental Protection Act – Environmental Compliance Approval
  • Ontario Water Resources Act – Permit to take Water
  • Conservation Authority Permits

In many cases, these permits require that the impacts of the project on the surrounding environment be identified and assessed prior to a decision being made. This is called an Environmental Assessment, and is valuable in planning the project prior to undertaking any actions to ensure that long-term negative impacts are avoided. It will consider mitigation measures to offset negative impacts and will assess the impact of implementing these measures on the environment.
