Description: Conservation Ontario’s submission to MOECC on the draft “Guide: Consideration of Climate Change in Environmental Assessment in Ontario” (EBR# 012-5806). The purpose of the Guide is to broaden the understanding of proponents and the public about MOECC’s expectations for considering the effects of climate change in environmental assessment studies and processes. Conservation Ontario’s comments were supportive of the Guide’s recommendation of including climate change mitigation and adaptation considerations in environmental assessment projects in Ontario. The comments highlighted the need for more direction on considering a project’s effects on the resilience to climate change of the surrounding environment, infrastructure and communities.
