Harper Grey’s Canadian Environmental Law Blog was created to provide immediate access to current and practical information relating to environmental regulation of contaminated sites.

We cover a range of topics including:

  • Contaminated site investigation and remediation
  • Transactions involving contaminated lands
  • Contaminated site redevelopment
  • Recovery of costs of remediation
  • Pursuit of key regulatory instruments
  • Pollution prevention, abatement, and spill response issues
  • Guidance through the municipal permitting process
  • Negotiating with the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy

This blog is a key resource for:

  • Real estate owners and developers seeking to understand the opportunities, responsibilities and potential liabilities that arise from purchase, sale and redevelopment of contaminated sites
  • Lawyers (in house and outside counsel) who advise on environmental legislation and compliance, remediation and redevelopment issues, and transactions involving contaminated sites
  • Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs)
  • Lenders
  • Insurers
  • Environmental consultants and contractors
