Mississauga’s Lakeview neighbourhood is one step closer to a greener future. Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) and the Region of Peel have submitted their environmental assessment for the Lakeview Waterfront Connection (LWC) to the Ministry of the Environment for review and approval. If approved, the project will result in a new natural park on the eastern Mississauga waterfront with wildlife habitat and public linkages.

The environmental assessment (EA) was supported by the City of Mississauga and the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA). The project received strong public support throughout the EA public consultation process.

The EA submission is the culmination of over two years of public consultation, government and agency collaboration and detailed environmental studies. The process began in February 2012 with CVC and the Region of Peel publicly issuing a notice of commencement for the environmental assessment.

The LWC EA is being submitted as required under section 6.2(1) of the Environmental Assessment Act, and according to the LWC EA Terms of Reference, which was approved by the Minister of the Environment on December 5, 2012.

The EA is available for public review and comments. The review period will begin on Friday, May 2, 2014 and end on Friday, June 20, 2014. All comments must be submitted in writing, on or before Friday, June 20, 2014, to the Ministry of the Environment:
