Back on the omnibus with Bill C-45: Another omnibus budget bill drives more change to federal environmental law

11/6/2012

As you may recall, in late April 2012, the federal government introduced Bill C-38: An Act to Implement Certain Provisions of the Budget tabled in Parliament on March 29, 2012 and Other Measures which received Royal Assent on June 29, 2012[i] and is now known as the Jobs, Growth and Long-Term Prosperity Act, S.C. 2012, c. 19.  The implementation of Bill C-38 substantively changed federal environmental law in Canada.[ii] Over ten pieces of federal environmental legislation were amended or repealed by Bill C-38.  Significant changes were made to federal environmental assessment law, fisheries law, and the operation of the National Energy Board.
