Jul 15 2004

CELA has prepared a preliminary  analysis of the proposed amendments to Ontario Regulation 285/99, the Water Taking and Transfer Regulation. The file is linked below. The comments have been provided in a chart form which sets out the current Ontario Regulation 285/99, the discussions at the multi-stakeholder consultations, the Ministry of the Environment's proposed amendments to Ontario Regulation 285/99, and CELA's recommendations regarding the Ministry of the Environment's proposal. We have also provided comments on the proposed amendments, which are not included in the current Ontario Regulation 285/99, but which are being proposed in the amendments to Ontario Regulation 285/99. Finally, we have noted additional amendments which CELA has recommended in the past, but which were not included in the proposed amendments to Ontario Regulation 285/99 or the current regulation.  CELA's preliminary analysis is intended to provide you with guidance in drafting your comments to the Ministry of the Environment on these proposed amendments.
