Ontario’s risk-based approach to environmental approvals includes an Environmental Activity and Sector Registry (EASR). The EASR is a public, web-based system that allows businesses conducting certain activities to register them with the ministry, rather than applying for an environmental approval.

Businesses engaged in select activities that meet eligibility requirements are required to register the activity or sector.
