Ontario Proposes Changes to its On-Site and Excess Soil Regulation Scheduled for Further (Substantial) Implementation on January 1, 2023
Rob Kennaley
November 7, 2022

On April 21, 2022 the Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks paused the implementation date for the notice, reporting and tracking provisions of Ontario’s On-Site and Excess Soil Regulation (O.Reg 406/19) until January 1, 2023, to give stakeholders time to better understand, and plan to meet, its requirements. The Ministry also advised that it would take the time to consult on refinements “to ensure they are clear, practical, and focused to circumstances for which they are most necessary”.

On November 4, 2022, the Ministry confirmed that the Regulation’s notice, reporting and soil-tracking provisions remain scheduled to come into force on January 1, 2023. In response to specific concerns raised during consultations, however, the Ministry announced its intention to tweak the Regulation, in limited ways, before the January 1st implementation date.
