Annual Monitoring Program 

As a Condition of Approval of the Municipal Class EA, the proponent municipalities, or MEA on their behalf, are required to implement a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Monitoring Program to monitor the use, compliance and effectiveness of the Municipal Class EA on an annual basis. The Annual Monitoring Reports in turn will be used as input to the five year review. As input to the Monitoring Program, a series of questionnaires have been developed to solicit information from key stakeholders to assist MEA in monitoring the continued ability of the Municipal Class EA process to meet generic class environmental assessment program objectives,including:

~ assessment of environmental effects

~ consultation

~ documentation of decision-making

~ streamlined approvals

~ self-assessment

The Road Project Tables refer to a Cost Limit in millions of dollars for each schedule, that if not exceeded would categorize a project of that description as being a Schedule A, A+ or possibly a B. If the Capital cost of a project would exceed the Cost Limit, the project would require a designation as a Schedule B
or C, depending on the project description.
