·  Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012

  • On April 26, 2012, the Government introduced Bill C-38, the Jobs, Growth and Long-Term Prosperity Act, a provision of which repealed the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, replacing it with a new Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012.
  • Bill C-38 received Royal Assent on June 29, 2012 and came into force on July 6, 2012.

So Canadian Government will change Environmental Assessment Act if it needs.

CEAA 2012 does not generally apply north of 60° where there are environmental assessment regimes in federal legislation, such as the Yukon Environmental and Socio-Economic Assessment Act, that have resulted from land claim agreements.
