Toronto ON

OBA Environmental Law PROGRAM | 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM

This program is also part of the 2019-2020 Environmental Law Passport Series - Navigating Your Practice In Today's Choppy Waters: Understanding Recent Changes in Environmental Law.

While environmental contamination is often considered a hurdle for closing a real estate transaction, our experts will discuss ways to manage these risks to help you get to closing. Learn about both the environmental risks associated with purchasing, selling or leasing contaminated land as well as the opportunities provided by the province and municipalities to encourage redevelopment.

Topics to be discussed will include:

  • Brownfields and redevelopment
  • Tax incremental grants (TIG) and municipal approaches to contaminated lands
  • Best practices for managing compliance and environmental liabilities during purchase, demolition and construction
