Doris Dumais Director, MOECC Modernization of Approvals Branchpresented at the recent CANECT CONFERENCE that the Modernization of Approvals IT infrastructure developed for the electronic Environmental Compliance Approval system may be re-purposed to assist in the modernization of municipal wastewater approvals using a risk-based, client-centered electronic service delivery model.

According to the presentation the Ministry intends to "modernize the service delivery for municipal wastewater approvals to align with related ministry initiatives: including the federal Wastewater Systems Effluent Regulations; initiatives under development with the Environmental Innovations Branch; the lessons learned from the System-wide Environmental Compliance Approval (ECA) pilot project; the municipal Drinking Water Licensing Program and the Transfer of Review Program."
 
The Ministry will be consulting on the proposed changes in the coming year.
