Final Environmental Assessment

Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) has completed the Scarborough Waterfront Project Environmental Assessment report.

On June 15, 2018 TRCA submitted the Environmental Assessment to the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP) for review and decision.

The public and agency comment period on the Environmental Assessment report ended on August 3, 2018. Minor edits to some chapters and appendices have been made in response to the technical agency review. In the coming weeks, the MECP will prepare and publish the Ministry Review, which is anticipated to be made available for public review and comment in mid-November 2018.

Updates will continue to be posted here on the website as the Scarborough Waterfront Project Environmental Assessment report moves through the Ministry review process.
