Regulation - LGIC

Proposed changes to the Aggregate Resources Act Ontario Regulation 244/97 and new policy regarding amendments to existing approvals

Regulation Number(s):
Ontario Regulation 244/97
Instrument Type:
Regulation - LGIC
Bill or Act:
Aggregate Resources Act
Summary of Proposal:
Please read this notice in its entirety through the Environmental Registry of Ontario, search for notice 019-6767.
Analysis of Regulatory Impact:
The proposed changes are anticipated to result in a net positive burden reduction for aggregate operators and no additional cost increases to business.

The proposed regulatory changes for amendments without ministry approval will improve processes and reduce administrative costs to business by allowing small changes to existing operations to be made sooner. The additional policy clarity for those amendments needing ministry approval will provide business certainty in terms of the consideration of the type of amendment, application requirements, processes and public notification and consultation for their business planning when requesting an amendment from the ministry.
