Impact Assessment Agency of Canada
On August 28, 2019, the Impact Assessment Act, the Canadian Energy Regulator Act, and the Canadian Navigable Waters Act came into force. The Impact Assessment Act creates the new Impact Assessment Agency of Canada and repeals the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012. Over the coming weeks and months, this website will be updated to reflect these legislated changes and to release new procedures, policy and guidance documents.
