The Purpose of the Environmental Registry

The Environmental Registry (“Registry”) is a website that provides public access to a database holding information about environmental proposals and decisions made by the Ontario government.

The Registry is an important part of ensuring that the public can participate in decisions being made on environmental issues. The Environmental Registry is the only one of its kind in Canada and was created under Ontario's Environmental Bill of Rights, 1993 (EBR).

Through providing internet access to environmentally-relevant information, the Environmental Registry allows the public to exercise its right to:

  • be given public notice of a range of government proposals and decisions related to environmental matters, and
  • be able to provide comments on those issues.

More information about the range of rights provided to Ontarians under the Environmental Bill of Rights – and how to exercise them – is available on the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks website.
