Environmental impact assessment is an official process used by governments at many levels to evaluate proposed developments. This guide provides links to official sources of government information as well as selected links to non-governmental organizations with interest in this process which are found under the Websites tab.
Note: The Library also has a large collection of Canadian government documents on microfiche. The principal collection is Microlog, which comprises federal, provincial and territorial, and some municipal documents. These are not listed in the library catalogue so you should also search the Web-based Canadian Research Index to locate all library holdings relating to environmental impact assessment.
NOTE: Most provincial environmental assessment agency websites include a link to relevant legislation and regulatory decisions.
For links to major international conventions and agreements relating to the environment see the Biodiversity subject guide.
NOTE: Use the Library's Online Maps custom Google search engine to locate other environmental maps
