Mines and Mining Plants Regulatory Amendment Proposal
The Ministry of Labour is proposing various amendments to the Regulation 854 (Mines and Mining Plants) under the Occupational Health and Safety Act. These amendments, if approved, would modernize workplace health and safety requirements for Ontario mines and mining plants.
Making Polluters Accountable: Industrial Emission Performance Standards
We are consulting on Ontario's proposed Emissions Performance Standard (EPS) to ensure polluters pay their fair share for their greenhouse gas emissions, while also ensuring industry continues to make advances to help Ontario achieve its share of Canada's 2030 target. These standards will apply to industry while maintaining competitiveness of Ontario businesses and minimizing carbon leakage-the risk of production leaving the province for other jurisdictions with less stringent climate policies.
Proposal to amend Ontario's Energy and Water Efficiency Regulation under the Electricity Act, 1998
The proposed regulatory changes, if passed, would help reduce red tape while providing consumers with access to a broader range of efficient products in Ontario. They would further support alignment of Ontario's requirements with those of the Canadian federal government (NRCan) or the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and would reduce barriers for ultra-high definition 8K televisions in the Ontario market.
Proposed regulatory amendments to Ontario Regulation 267/03 under the Nutrient Management Act
We are proposing changes to the General Regulation under the Nutrient Management Act to reduce administrative burden and provide more business opportunities for agricultural producers while protecting the environment and public interest.
We are proposing to remove the automatic cessation of a nutrient management strategy after five years.
We are also proposing to include low risk manures from non-farm grazing animals as Category 1 Non-Agricultural Source Material.
