The Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (ministry) has posted a proposal notice on the Environmental Registry of Ontario (ERO) to streamline environmental permissions for microbreweries and nanobreweries through self-registration, exemptions and the removal of unnecessary technical reporting requirements. Microbreweries would continue to be required to follow standard operational requirements that help prevent potential impacts of air emissions, odour, noise and dust on the surrounding community. These changes would reduce burden and cost for small-scale breweries, maintain the protection of the environment and human health, and encourage expansion and growth in the sector.
The proposal notice is now available for public comment until January 29, 2022.
