ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT PROCEDURES IN CANADA AND THEIR IMPLICATIONS FOR TRANSPORTATION

Environmental assessment (EA) and procedures are of growing importance and concern to those involved in or affected by large physical projects, including transportation projects. Today, two decades after the first EA requirements were implemented in Canada, the federal government and every provincial and territorial government has some form of EA process in place. This report discusses the EA process in Canada, its evolution, common principles and practices, and current issues with respect to the application of EA legislation. The report also describes the EA process and practice in the federal government and in each province and territory.
