Evolving Liability in the Environmental and Natural Resources Regulatory Landscape 

Feb. 4, 2020
Toronto ON


OBA Environmental Law and Natural Resources and Energy Law | 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM

Environmental and natural resource regulatory liabilities continue to evolve in Ontario and reach farther than ever.

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (“MNRF”), the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (“MECP”) and Ontario’s Conservation Authorities have significant regulatory authority to issue orders and lay charges. What were once seldom-applied statutes are now often used by these entities to regulate development and natural resource project proponents. As a result, developers, contractors, land owners, municipalities and others find themselves faced with new and expanding environmental liabilities that may stop a project in its tracks.

Join the OBA’s Environmental and Natural Resources Law Sections for a joint program about recent updates in the law and regulatory enforcement, and how to prepare for them.
