Excess Soil Management Policy Framework Discussion Paper

Excess soil is a result of intensive land development across the province. While cities continue to grow, proper excess soil management is necessary to protect human health and the environment.

Many organizations in Ontario are working to improve the management of excess soil through their own activities (including industry best management practices, conservation authority guidelines, municipal pilot projects, qualified person guidance and soil matching programs). The province developed the proposed Excess Soil Policy Framework to protect human health and the environment from inappropriate relocation of excess soil and enhance opportunities for the beneficial reuse of excess soil.
