Environmental Assessments

Overview

A Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) is a five phase study that identifies potential positive and negative effects of municipal capital projects such as roads, water and wastewater.

The process includes an extensive evaluation of impacts on the natural and social environment, which includes the impacts to plants and animals, traffic patterns, and to residents and businesses in the community. Through the process, measures are identified to prevent or mitigate any negative impacts.

Process

In Ontario, municipal EAs follow the Municipal Engineers Association document "Municipal Class Environmental Assessment," (October 2000, amended 2007).

Public consultation is a vital part of the EA process and in Ajax we host Public Information Centres or PIC's in the community as well as consult directly with municipal councils, review agencies, interest groups, and property owners.

For more information on the process, please read the Class Environmental Assessment Process Guide.
