Program or Service Description:
The provincial standards for renewable projects are now outlined in a new approvals process, the Renewable Energy Approval (REA).
REA combines previous requirements under the Environmental Assessment Act with clear provincial rules and standards in a new regulation under the Environmental Protection Act.
We are committed to the OPS service principles (i.e., accessible, responsive, reliable, caring, accountable; consistent, predictable, transparent, continuous improvement) and OPS common service standards (i.e., response times to general phone calls, mail, email, fax) as outlined in the ministry's service charter.
