What is the Environmental Registry?
The Environmental Registry is a website where you can find notices about environmentally significant proposals and decisions of the Ontario government.
You can search the registry based on keywords, like topics or locations, for items of interest to you. See What is posted on the Registry for detailed information about what you will find there.
In some cases, you have the opportunity to comment on decisions before they are finalized, and the ministry is required to consider your comments. See How to Review and Comment On Proposals For Acts, Regulations, Policies And Instruments for an overview, or a detailed description from our guidebook, The EBR and You.
On the Environmental Registry, you will also find ministries' Statements of Environmental Values, which describe how they will integrate environmental values with social, economic and scientific ones.
Each ministry must consider your comments, and its Statement of Environmental Values, when making environmentally significant decisions.
The Environmental Registry is created under the Environmental Bill of Rights and maintained by the Ministry of the Environment. For technical support, please call the Ministry of the Environment, Environmental Bill of Rights Office at (416) 314-4143.
