(Pages C39 - 40) Technical Standards and Safety Act Good evening, I am writing to inform you about the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks next steps -in-Ontario Environment Plan commitment to build an environmental assessment (EA) program that ensures strong environmental oversight and a strong economy. The current process for environmental assessments is slow and ineffective. It can take up to six years for some projects, slowing down important infrastructure projects that help Ontario communities, such as installing electricity infrastructure. Even projects subject to a streamlined process, such as new roads and bridges, canbe further delayed by administrative burden, impacting the timely construction of basic infrastructure. discussion paper(https://prod- environmental-registry.s3.amazonaws.com/2019-04/EA%20Discussion%20Paper.pdf) outlining the challenges with our current framework and introducing our vision for a modernized EA program, as the first step in our plan to update the nearly 50-year-old Environmental Assessment Act(EAA). As we committed in our Made-in-Ontario Environment Plan, we want to improve the environmental assessment program by eliminating duplication and reducing delays on projects that matter most to Ontario communities. To start, we amended the EAA through the More Homes, More Choice Act, 2019to exempt low-impact projects, such as constructing roadside parks and adding bike lanes from requiring an environmental assessment. Projects like these are routine activities that have benefits to communities but little to no environmental impacts. -19 Economic Recovery Act, we are now proposing to move forward with the next phase of environmental assessment modernization, to further reduce delays and focus our resources on projects with a higher potential for environmental impacts so that we can help communities get important infrastructure projects built faster, while maintaining strong environmental oversight. Building infrastructure projects faster, including transit and highways, will help boost Ontario's economic recovery, create thousands of jobs, put more opportunities within the reach of businesses, create more affordable housing, and ensure a higher standard of living in every community across the province. The proposal includes the items outlined below: Proposed amendments to the Environmental Assessment Act(EAA) Through the COVID-19 Economic Recovery Act, our government has proposed amendments to the EAA, which allow us to move forward with our next phase of our modernization plans, while at the same time supporting the government economic recovery goals by making it possible for us to find efficiencies in the environmental assessment process of important public works. The legislation would allow us, through subsequent regulations and proclamations, to allow online submissions, reduce the average time by half for the largest projects and match the potential environmental impact of a project to the level of study required. The proposed changes are aimed at getting important infrastructure projects built faster, while maintaining strong environmental oversight by focusing on projects that have the most potential to impact the environment. We posted an information notice on the environmental registry to provide information about the proposed legislative changes to the EAA that will be proceeding through the legislative process.Please refer to https://ero.ontario.ca/notice/019-2051for more information. Amendments to Class Environmental Assessments (Class EAs) My ministry is also seeking input on proposed amendments to 8 Class EAs. These proposed changes would support our modernization initiative as they would exempt low- impact projects from the requirements of the Environmental Assessment Act, eliminate duplication and find efficiencies in the planning process. This would speed up projects that are important to communities, such as erosion, repair, or remediation initiatives, or important upgrades to machinery such as waterpower generators. My ministry is seeking input on these proposed amendments during a 45-daycomment period, closing on August 22, 2020.Details of this proposal may be found at https://ero.ontario.ca/notice/019-1712. Exempting Regulations In addition, my ministry is also proposing regulatory exemptions from the Environmental Assessment Actto eliminate duplication and reduce delays for projects and activities related to Indigenous land claim settlements and other agreements with Indigenous communities dealing with land, projects within provincial parks and conservation reserves, and select highway projects being planned by the Ministry of Transportation. Some of these projects and activities are already subject to other legislation or planning processes that would provide the appropriate level of assessment and consultation. Other projects may be exempted from the EAA but would still be subject to conditions such as requirements to post notifications or undertake technical studies as appropriate. My ministry is seeking input on these proposed amendments during a 45-daycomment period, closing on August 22, 2020. For details of the proposal regarding land claim settlement activities and other agreements with Indigenous communities dealing with land, please refer to https://ero.ontario.ca/notice/019-1805. For details of the proposal regarding projects in provincial parks and conservation reserves please refer to https://ero.ontario.ca/notice/019-1804. For details of the proposals for select Ministry of Transportation projects, please refer tohttps://ero.ontario.ca/notice/019-1882and https://ero.ontario.ca/notice/019-1883. Information about the proposed Class EA amendments can be found on the environmental registry.We ask that you submit any comments that you may have through the instructions provided, and by the deadlines listed above.

Sincerely, Jeff Yurek Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks Dear Mayor/Head of Council: RE: Thank you for your resolutions with preferred timing for transition of your Blue Box program In December 2019 I wrote to you requestingthat your Council pass a resolution outlining the preferred date to transition your municipal Blue Box program to full producer responsibility if provided the opportunity to self-determine (between January 1, 2023 and December 31, 2025). I asked that resolutions be provided by June 30, 2020.Despite the challenges all ofour communities have faced with the COVID-19 emergency, we have received over 160 resolutions which represents over 95% of the Blue Box program. I want to thank each of you for providing this information to the Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks and AMO. We have attached a summary of the information we have received from each of you and I would ask that you review it and let us know by August 15, 2020 if there are any revisions or corrections required. Please note:the attachment lists municipal programs as they report into the datacall.For some programs, this is completed as a group of municipalities under an Association (i.e. Bluewater Recycling, Essex- Windsor Solid Waste Authority etc.) or as an upper tier municipality where services are provided by both levels of government (i.e. Oxford County, York Region etc.).We have presented the date based on what the majority of members selected. However, in some cases there are discrepancies in the dates chosen by members within these groups. If your municipality finds itself in this situation, please take a look and discuss this with your peers in the Association or in your Region or County.Also note that all resolutions have been provided to Ministry as they were received. The Ministry of the Environment Conservation and Parks has already received this information and will beusing it to inform their recommendations on the transition schedule intheir draft Regulation which is expected by the end of the summer. As you know, the transitions of the Blue Box programs to full producer responsibility are expected to occur with approximately one third of the program transitioning in each of 2023, 2024 and 2025.Based on the responses received, we have used the transition date you have proposed and allocated your For example, a municipality that indicated a transition date of July 1, 2023 would have half of the program allocated to 2023 and the other half allocated to 2024.Based on this, the preferred timing indicated through Council resolutions provides for a measured transition over the three years, as shown in the Table belowusing a number of different criteria: Waste HouseholPopulatioCollecteMarketeGross Net Generate dsnddCostCost d 2023 39.98%37.62%37.82%37.32%38.68%37.56%38.91% *Represents 96 programs 2024 28.56%29.02%28.36%27.61%27.56%27.17%28.66% *Represents 20 programs 2025 24.24%27.57%28.82%28.39%25.48%26.01%28.85% * Represents 15 programs PLEASE NOTE that the Ministry of theEnvironment, Conservation and Parks will be making the final determination on the transition schedule. th Thank you again for your hard work to submit your resolutions by June 30despite all of the challenges we have faced over the last several months.
