Ontario Environmental Assessments (OEA) is a process for reviewing the environmental impact of proposed activities prior to the granting of government funds. It applies to government ministries and agencies, conservation authorities and municipalities. It does not apply to private projects unless a special regulation is passed. Undertakings can be assessed individually or as part of a class i.e. a type of activity with common characteristics and potential effects. Government can exempt proponents from the OEA process.
