Expansion of administrative monetary penalties to create efficient and effective environmental enforcement and support local environmental projects
TORONTO — Ontario’s government is delivering on its Made-in-Ontario Environment Plan commitment to hold polluters accountable, bring violators back into compliance quickly, and support local environmental projects. As part of the Better for People, Smarter for Business Act, we are proposing to expand the use of administrative monetary penalties to a broader range of environmental violations and reinvest the money to support projects that provide local solutions to environmental issues.
Today, Jeff Yurek, Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks, along with Andrea Khanjin, Parliamentary Assistant, and Prabmeet Sarkaria, Associate Minister of Small Business and Red Tape Reduction, visited Tommy Thompson Park to announce a proposal to expand the use of administrative monetary penalties to a broader range of environmental violations.
