Stakeholders, including Indigenous Communities, will receive direct (mail and email) notification of the opportunity to consult on criteria, methods and draft mapping of the NHS for the Growth Plan for the GGH. Opportunities will be available to provide comments on the Environmental Registry for 90 days, with the final day for the submission of comments being October 4, 2017.
Three facilitated regional technical sessions will occur during the Environmental Registry posting on the proposed criteria and draft map.

Facilitated listening sessions will occur with Indigenous Communities to also discuss the technical components of the NHS (in collaboration with OMAFRA).
Other meetings and/or listening sessions may occur as requested or required throughout the consultation period.
