Environmental Assessments in Ontario Post Kawartha Lakes

Last week, we held our seminar in Cambridge, Ontario, where we considered environmental site assessments in light of the Kawartha Lakes decision.  After spending about 90 minutes discussing the possible “fallout” from this landmark legal/environmental decision, as well as some published comments by legal counsel, there was a tone of concern among the participants.

To put the issues in perspective, we considered five case studies of recently completed environmental site assessments/property transactions.  We then considered each of these projects in context of the Kawartha Lakes decision.

As we wrapped up our time together, we shared the Five Leading Best Practices that are “musts” as we consider environmental assessments going forward in Ontario.

As one of the participants shared with us, “Technical competence of one’s consultant/advisor is so, so important.” We agree; surrounding yourself with excellent advisors from various disciplines, is increasingly important.
