Welcome to the Environmental Registry of Ontario

The registry allows you to comment and share your thoughts on actions we take that could affect the environment.

Search the registry


Tell us what you think about the new Environmental Registry!

We'll improve it based on your feedback.

For now, only notices for policies, acts and regulations will be on this site. Instrument notices will still be posted on the old registry.

On this site

This is the place where you can consult and take part in government decision-making that might affect the environment.

You can read and comment on new policy, act or regulation notices on this registry.

Notices for instruments (e.g. permits, approvals and orders) are still posted on the old registry. They’re coming here soon.

Learn about the Environmental Registry and the consultation process.

What's new

We’ve been working hard to create a new Environmental Registry with:

  • a fresh look
  • better search capabilities
  • custom notifications
  • clearer information

The registry is currently in beta. This means you can test out and use key features of the site while we make tweaks, additions and improvements using your feedback.
