Workshops & Webinars

Excess Soil By-Law Tool Webinar 2017

On February 17th 100+ viewers tuned in to learn about the Canadian Urban Institute's (CUI)  recently launched Excess Soil By-Law Tool, a resource that promotes the beneficial reuse of excess soil through municipal by-laws. 

The tool provides links to municipal site alteration and fill by-laws in Southern Ontario and guidance about how to address common issues through municipal by-laws including: permits, fill management plans, fees and cost recovery, and more.

CUI was joined by Sanjay Coelho, a Senior Policy Analyst at the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change, who shared information regarding Ontario's new Excess Soil Management Policy Framework.
