Three regulations related to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012 ( “CEAA 2012”) have been released. The regulations set out the designated projects for which an environmental assessment is required, the information required in project descriptions, and the types of costs incurred by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the “CEA Agency”) in the course of environmental assessments that may be recovered from project proponents. All three regulations have been published in their final version and will come into force concurrently with CEAA 2012.
