"Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is increasingly becoming a basic tool for decision-making at the federal, provincial, and local levels of government. EIA is a form of pre-project evaluation intended to provide a basis for deciding whether, and how, to proceed with a proposed project so as to prevent or minimize environmental degradation. It assumes that incorporating environmental considerations early in the planning process of a project will better protect the environment"--Introduction, p. 1.
