Thank you for your ideas, this engagement is now closed.
The first phase of regulations regarding spill preparedness came into effect in October 2017. The second phase, included the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy’s Intentions Paper outlining policy concepts government is considering to ensure effective spill management across the province. Government collected feedback from Indigenous community members, industry, local government, environmental organizations, affected stakeholders and the public on the proposed regulations.
As part of the engagement process, the Ministry held regional meetings with First Nations throughout March, April and May 2018, as well as establish working groups comprised of members from interested and impacted agencies and organizations.
The online public engagement was open from February 28 to April 30, 2018 at 4:00 PM
All feedback will be summarized into a public ‘What We Heard’ report that will be posted to this site in summer 2018. New spill regulations are anticipated in 2019.
