The new federal Impact Assessment Act (IAA) which came into force on August 28, 2019, represents a fundament shift in federal environmental assessment in Canada. The move from environmental assessment to impact assessment has resulted in a need for guidance on how the new legislation differs from the old and the ramifications of those differences. That’s what A Guide to Canada’s Impact Assessment Act, 2020 Edition aims to provide.

Practical and Informative
Written by three expert environmental lawyers, A Guide to Canada’s Impact Assessment Act, 2020 Edition offers valuable insight into the new Act as well as a detailed review of each of the processes that now govern impact assessment. In particular, practitioners of impact assessment and environmental, resources and infrastructure law will benefit from:

  • The overview of the IAA, including the most relevant features
  • The 10-point summary of the application and administration of the IAA
  • Valuable commentary prepared by a team of leading environmental lawyers
  • The full text of the IAA and the accompanying regulations
  • The full text of the IAA’s predecessor statute, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012
