What is this engagement about?
Climate change affects all aspects of our environment, including the long-term effectiveness of cleaning up land that may be contaminated through industrial or commercial usage, such as gas stations, storage facilities, or processing plants.
The Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy is reviewing how we can ensure the cleanup efforts of contaminated sites adapt to our changing climate by focusing on:
- Including climate change adaptation and sustainability into provincial site remediation requirements
- Strengthening remediation requirements to protect groundwater quality
