OMAFRA is proposing changes to the Drainage Act that would reduce burden, streamline approvals and address stakeholder concerns while maintaining environmental standards.
OMAFRA is proposing changes to the Drainage Act that would:
- provide the minister with legislative authority to develop and sign off on technical protocols such as the Drainage Act and Conservation Authorities Act Protocol
- create a new streamlined Drainage Act process for minor improvements
- enable a simplified process to update the engineer’s report to account for changes to the design made during construction
See attached for the Drainage Act Discussion Paper which outlines the proposed changes.
