Ministry of the Environment’s Record of Site Condition
The Ministry of Environment requires that when uses on a property change, a record of site condition must be filed (Regulation 153/04). Many brownfield sites require a record of site condition because most will be former industrial sites that will be redeveloped for residential, commercial or open space uses. This webpage outlines this legislation, as well as provides access to the Environmental Site Registry of properties that have filed a record of site condition.
