Projects on Federal Lands and Outside Canada

This document provides guidance on federal environmental assessments commenced under the former Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012. It is retained for the completion of transitional environmental assessments commenced prior to the Impact Assessment Act. For more information on transitional environmental assessments, please consult the Legislation and Regulations page.

The Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012 (CEAA 2012) includes provisions for projects on federal lands and outside Canada that are not designated projects subject to an environmental assessment.

The guidance provided in this section is for information purposes only. It is not a substitute for CEAA 2012 or any of its regulations. In the event of any inconsistency between this guidance and CEAA 2012 or regulations, CEAA 2012 or regulations, as the case may be, would prevail.
