We want to hear from you!

The Government of Canada is currently undertaking a comprehensive review of federal environmental and regulatory processes. This review includes the following:

  • Reviewing federal environmental assessment processes;
  • Modernizing the National Energy Board;
  • Restoring lost protections and introducing modern safeguards to the Fisheries Act and the Navigation Protection Act.

There have been many ways that Canadians have been able to get involved and participate in this process.

Review of federal environmental assessment processes

The Expert Panel conducting the review of federal environmental assessment processes engaged broadly with the public and Indigenous groups, both online and in-person from September to December 2016. Visit to read what the Panel heard during this engagement period.

The public, stakeholders, and Indigenous groups will have another opportunity to share their views during a public comment period, after the Expert Panel has submitted their report with findings and recommendations to the Minister of Environment and Climate Change.
