About The Submission:
In June 2018, EDC submitted comments on the Government of Canada’s Consultation Paper on Approach to Revising the Project List: A Proposed Impact Assessment System to the CEAA. None of the recommendations that were thoughtfully developed by numerous environmental organizations were reflected anywhere in the contents of the discussion paper. Therefore, EDC is re-submitting our 2018 recommendations, and have also included high-level concerns in response to the discussion paper. As currently proposed, the project list would jeopardize the integrity and utility of the IAA as proposed in Bill C-69 – and thus we cannot support the government moving forward with this regulation.
