ERO-019-4300 – Exempting 5 LRIA Orders from EBR Stakeholder Consultation Requirements

The ORA is in strong support of ensuring that MNRF is more efficient in issuing permits to remove old and unsafe dams; however, we are strongly opposed to exempting these five LRIA orders from the requirements to consult the public under Part II of the EBR. This would mean that stakeholders, the public and Indigenous communities would have no opportunity to be consulted and provide input on projects that could heavily impact their property values, quality of life, and other important landowner interests!
