As a result of the amendments passed as part of Bill C-9, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (“Agency”) became responsible for carrying out most comprehensive studies. There are 22 comprehensive studies that were underway and for which the Minister of the Environment had not yet made a decision on the type of assessment; these comprehensive studies have now been assumed by the Agency.
