Environment Impact Assessment or EIA can be defined as the study to predict the effect of a proposed activity/project on the environment. A decision making tool, EIA compares various alternatives for a project and seeks to identify the one which represents the best combination of economic and environmental costs and benefits. impact (such as bore well leading to depletion of ground water), Limited Environmental Assessment is suggested. Category A: If the proposed sub-project has a severe adverse environmental impact, that cannot be mitigated within a feasible timeframe and budget, Environmental Impact Assessment is suggested.

Proposed framework to assess cumulative environmental effects in Canadian national parks. Halifax, N.S.: Parks Canada, Atlantic Regional Office, © (OCoLC) The environmental effects of a physical activity on a VC must occur within the spatial and temporal boundaries set for the cumulative effects assessment (using the approaches outlined in this guidance) in order for that physical activity and its environmental effects to be considered in the cumulative effects assessment.
consideration (called residual effects), then that VC goes forward to the cumulative effects assessment. For the cumulative effects on a given VC, the residual effects of the project are assessed in combination with the potential effects of other reasonably foreseeable3 projects and activities that overlap with the effects of the proposed project.
The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency should review and update its guidance, including its Cumulative Effects Assessment Practitioners Guide, to take into account recent practices within Canada, including lessons learned from past assessments, as well as lessons from elsewhere regarding assessments of cumulative environmental effects.
Strategic environmental assessment enables early consideration of potential environmental effects during the development of policies, plans or programs. Consideration of both positive and negative environmental effects makes it possible to develop measures to reduce negative effects or enhance positive effects.
Whatever future projects are included in assessments of cumulative environmental effects, the reasons and relevant information supporting the decision should be presented in the environmental assessment report.
Types of Approvals. There are many different types of government approvals processes for projects. The project’s potential environmental effects may extend outside a provincial park or conservation reserve, for example, where there are potential effects on nearby communities.

Any proposed development in the Canadian national parks, including highways, is subject to the most rigorous environmental assessment procedures in Canada as outlined within the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act (CEAA).

Section 2 illustrates how the (Bausch ). Efforts to develop methods for cumulative effects analysis have also been ongoing, and they are expected to culminate in.
Canadian Natural shall prepare and submit an EIA report that examines the incremental environmental and socio-economic effects of the Project. The EIA report shall be prepared considering all applicable provincial and federal legislation, codes of practice, guidelines, standards, policies and directives.

The Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (ministry) is proposing a new policy for Cumulative Effects Assessment (CEA) in air approvals to more effectively consider cumulative impacts from multiple air pollution sources - both industrial and non-industrial.
Following significant changes to the federal environmental assessment regime, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEA Agency) continues to revisit its policy and guideline documents. Currently, the CEA Agency seeks public comments on its draft Technical Guidance for Assessing Cumulative Environmental Effects under the Canadian Environmental.
