A guide to the federal environmental assessment and review process: En103-4/1977E-PDF
Canada’s policy on environmental assessment for federal activities.
"In creating a Department of the Environment* in 1970, the Government of Canada responded to a deep public concern about environmental affairs and the potential for man-made disasters inherent in our way of life. The Government also recognized the impossibility of housing all federal environmental experts and related legislative instruments under one departmental roof because many government activities may impinge on the environment in one way or another. The responsibilities given to the Minister of the Environment reflected this understanding by directing that the Minister both “undertake” and “promote” programs to achieve environmental enhancement and protection. The Minister was directed also to coordinate such programs within the federal government as well as cooperate with other bodies, such as provincial governments, in programs having similar aims"--A Brief History.
