Canada's Environmental Reviews

In June 2016, the government announced a sweeping review of federal environmental laws – including Canada's environmental assessment (EA) law and processes, the Fisheries Act, Navigation Protection Act, and National Energy Board.

After an extensive engagement process and reports from Expert Panels and Parliamentary Standing Committees, the government introduced two bills – Bill C-68 and Bill C-69 – which contain important amendments and new legislation to replace the current laws.

This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to modernize Canada’s environmental laws and to strengthen decisions that affect land, air, water and the climate.
