Ongoing environmental assessments (EAs)

Ongoing environmental assessments

On August 28, 2019, the Government of Canada enacted the Impact Assessment Act (IAA). The IAA broadens the scope of assessments to include environmental, health, social and economic effects – both positive and negative – of a proposed project. It replaces the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012 (CEAA 2012).

Ongoing projects with environmental assessments (EAs), initiated under CEAA 2012 andled by the CNSC, will continue under their current processes. The IAA contains provisions to enable these projects to advance in this way.
