• Environmental Compliance / Public Work Class Environmental Assessment

    IO provides clear and concise environmental compliance oversight and support as part of the ongoing management of our portfolio of properties.

    Environmental assessment is a planning and decision-making process that we follow for projects that will be undertaken on government property.  This process, described in the Ministry of Infrastructure Public Work Class Environmental Assessment, sets out how the Ministry of Infrastructure proposes to meet requirements of Ontario’s Environmental Assessment Act.

    As required by this process, we take into account the potential effects of these projects on the environment and when required, consult a variety of stakeholders to identify and resolve issues of concern before making an informed decision about when and if these projects may proceed.

    An environmental assessment report may be required for a project that follows this planning process.  The report describes the project, summarizes the findings of the planning process and stakeholder consultation, and explains plans to lessen and/or monitor potential negative effects on the environment

    Class Environmental Assessment Reports for projects are available for public review and comment within a specified period.

    A Backgrounder provides an overview of the planning process in the Ministry of Infrastructure Public Work Class Environmental Assessment.
