Bill 197, the COVID-19 Economic Recovery Act, 2020, received Royal Assent on July 21st, 2020. This legislation made significant changes to the Environmental Assessment Act, providing the first major structural and conceptual reforms since the EAA was enacted in 1976. Bill 197 will change how government agencies, ministries, companies in particular sectors, municipalities, First Nations and environmentalists engage in environmental planning and monitoring of EA implementation and compliance in the years ahead, and the availability of judicial review. Join our panel of experts as they provide an overview of Bill 197, and delve into the significant changes to the EAA and the various class EA programs. Learn how these changes to the environmental planning process will impact your clients in the years ahead.
