Towards a more speedy permitting process
Towards a more Speedy Permitting Process:

  • Provinces already assigned functions relating to waste disposal management under s.24 of ECA

  • Waste disposal permitting function will be assigned to Provinces (this is consistent with the EIA process already being undertaken by Provinces)

  • DEAT will retain permitting of hazardous waste sites in line with EIA Regulations

  • DEAT will provide support to Provinces for the development of provincial capacity for landfill permitting function
