There are circumstances where the Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks has the authority to require further consideration of the transit project or impose conditions on it. These include if the Minister is of the opinion that: 

  • The transit project may have a negative impact on a matter of provincial importance that relates to the natural environment or has cultural heritage value or interest; or 
  • The transit project may have a negative impact on a constitutionally protected Aboriginal or treaty right. 

Before exercising the authority referred to above, the Minister is required to consider any written objections to the transit project that he or she may receive within 30 days of first publishing the Notice of EPR Addendum. If you have discussed your issues with Metrolinx and you object to the project, you can provide a written submission to the Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks by no later than July 5, 2021 to the email provided below.
