Environmental Impact Assessment Application FormsEnvironmental impact assessments are necessary to assess the possible impact, positive or negative, that a proposed "undertaking" or project may have on the environment.
The Environmental Protection Act defines “undertaking” as including any construction, industry, operation or other project or any alteration or modification to an existing undertaking which will or may:
- cause the emission or discharge of any contaminant into the environment;
- have an effect on any unique, rare or endangered feature of the environment;
- have a significant effect on the environment or necessitate further development which is likely to have a significant effect on the environment; or
- cause public concern because of its real or perceived effect or potential effect on the environment.
Every proponent of a proposed undertaking must submit a complete application available below or from any Access PEI.
Every undertaking in Prince Edward Island must be approved by the Department of Environment, Labour and Justice prior to construction or operation of the undertaking.
