This consultation was open from:

February 26, 2018

Proposal summary

We’ve updated the Environmental Registry of Ontario with a new look, better search capabilities, clearer information and custom notifications. This will make it easier to find and comment on environmental issues that matter to you.

Proposal details

Your feedback

We want to hear your feedback on the new and improved Environmental Registry.

Take this short survey to let us know your thoughts.

What’s new

We spent the past few months creating a new registry with you - the user - in mind.

On top of the updated look and feel, we’ve:

  • improved commenting
  • written notices more clearly
  • expanded registry account functions
  • incorporated notifications
  • made the search tool easier to use

We will add more features throughout 2018.

Read about our process to develop the new registry.

Using the new registry

We’ll post any new policy, act or regulation notices on this registry going forward. You’ll be able to read them and comment here from now on.

For now, instrument notices will still be posted on the old registry. They’re coming here shortly.

Previously-posted notices will still be available to read on the old registry. In mid-2018, we’ll retire the old site and migrate all previously-posted notices over to this one.

Beta version

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

We will remove the beta label once all the registry's functionality is in place.
