MOU between Canada and British Columbia on Substitution of Environmental Assessments

The BC Environmental Assessment Office and the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency have signed a Memorandum of Understanding that establishes expectations, roles and procedures for implementing the substitution of environmental assessments in BC.

Substitution is a new tool enabled by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012. Under substitution, where both federal and provincial environmental assessments are required, there can be a single review process (the provincial one) and two decisions (federal and provincial).
