We’re starting to prepare this year’s edition of the Canadian Environmental Law consolidation, which we publish every year with Canada Law Book. This is a valuable desk reference – we use it regularly! Despite all the press, there have been few actual changes in the last year in federal environmental laws and regulations, mainly:
Canada Shipping Act – new reg SOR/2007-86, Regulations for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships and for Dangerous Chemicals, which repeals 7 old regulations.
Canadian Environmental Assessment Regulations – new reg SOR/2007-108 Exclusion List Regulations, 2007, which repeals SOR/94-639
Canadian Environmental Protection Regulations – new regs SOR/2006-298, Virtual Elimination List, and SOR/2006-347, 2-Butoxyethanol Regulations.
The updated book will be available soon from Canada Law Book.
