Experienced Perth Environmental Lawyers

The area of environmental law in Ontario is regulated federally under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA), as well as provincially under Ontario’s Environmental Protection Act (EPA) and the Ontario Water Resources Act (OWRA). These statues focus on protecting the environment against adverse effects caused by environmental harm.

The EPA and the OWRA regulate activities being carried on in Ontario which could negatively affect the environment. These activities are not limited to industrial or commercial activities, but also include residential drinking wells. These statutes also include enforcement provisions which could result in fines, orders and prosecutions. The EPA is complex legislation which the environmental lawyers at Mann Lawyers LLP are thoroughly familiar with.

Some of the areas litigated under environmental laws include groundwater and drinking water contamination; soil contamination; historical contamination, spills, hazardous substance discharges and compliance matters. The environmental lawyers at Mann Lawyers LLP have been on the leading edge of environmental litigation with their involvement in several precedent-setting decisions.
