Law Commission of Ontario Report on A New Environmental Bill of Rights for Ontario

The Law Commission of Ontario (LCO) has published A New Environmental Bill of Rights for Ontario: Final Report.

The report examines Ontario's existing Environmental Bill of Rights (EBR) and makes a series of major recommendations to enhance environmental accountability in the province.

The EBR was proclaimed in February 1994 and it introduced a number of mechanisms to improve public participation, transparency, and government accountability for environmental decision-making. 

The LCO concludes that the EBR has not always been meeting its stated objectives and needs updating.

The report's 58 recommendations for change are listed in Appendix A of the report.
