The City is proposing to expand the W12A Landfill as part of its overall long term Residual Waste Strategy. Expansion of the landfill will require the City to complete an environmental assessment. The first step in an environmental assessment is to develop a Terms of Reference which becomes the work plan or blueprint for completing the environmental assessment.
The Proposed Terms of Reference was developed over 16 months with community and stakeholder engagement throughout the process. The City submitted the Proposed Terms of Reference to the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP) for approval in October 2018. A decision from the MECP is expected in Spring 2019.
