Amendments have been made to the Codes of Practice for Ontario's Environmental Assessment Process: Preparing and Reviewing Environmental Assessments and Class Environmental Assessments. These amendments strengthen the wording of the codes, provide greater clarity, address identified concerns with the codes, and update relevant information. The Class EA Code specifically clarified the discussion about Aboriginal Consultation confirming that proponents are responsible to plan for and engage in meaningful Aboriginal Consultation.
