Regulations Designating Physical Activities under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012 Finalized and Filed

October 30, 2013


Changes to the Regulations Designating Physical Activities (the Project List) under the federal Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012 (CEAA 2012) were finalized and filed by the federal Minister of the Environment last week.

OSSGA and the Cement Association of Canada worked during the public comment period last spring to bring concerns of industry regarding the proposed threshold of tonnage to the attention of the federal Minister, MPs and other federal officials. This effort was successful in affecting significant changes to the final regulations filed.

Thank you to the Cement Association of Canada for their leadership on this file.
