Prior to undertaking an Environmental Assessment (EA), the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act requires that a proponent prepare a Terms of Reference (TOR).

As a member of the Partnership, the Ontario Ministry of Transportation has developed a TOR for the preparation of an EA. The TOR is being submitted to the Ontario Minister of the Environment for review as required under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. If approved, the TOR will serve as the framework for conducting an Environmental Assessment Study to develop and select transportation alternatives.

The TOR (and supporting documents) is being made available for review from May 20, 2004 to June 21, 2004. You are encouraged to review the document posted here.

Written comments on the Terms of Reference may be submitted to MOE no later than June 21, 2004. Please submit comments to:
