The Ontario Ministry of the Environment is seeking public comments on a draft "Guide to Applying for an Environmental Compliance Approval", designed to assist an applicant in completing the application form for the approval. The Environmental Compliance Approval (ECA) replaces what was formerly known as a "Certificate of Approval" (CoA). Applicants for approval can now apply for an ECA for multiple activities and projects in multiple media under a single ECA application.
The draft Guide can be reviewed at: Draft ECA Application Guide. Public comments on the draft guide are being accepted until April 10, 2012. Comments are to be directed to:
