Class Environmental Assessment Process

The culvert improvements are subject to Ontario’s Environmental Assessment Act and are being carried out in accordance with the requirements of the Class Environmental Assessment (EA) for Provincial Transportation Facilities (2000). Based on the initial scope of work identified for each contract, the culvert improvements are classified as Group C undertakings according to MTO’s Class EA. Group C projects have minimal and predictable environmental effects that are readily mitigated. This type of project does not require formal documentation and is approved under the EA Act, subject to “screening”. The screening process includes public and agency consultation and determines the impacts of the project, measures and provisions required to prevent/mitigate adverse impacts, including monitoring requirements, during and after construction and the required approvals.
