Permits Authorizing an Activity Affecting Listed Wildlife Species Regulations

The Jobs, Growth and Long-term Prosperity Act, which received Royal Assent in June 2012, amended the Species at Risk Act (SARA) to, among other things, provide authority for the making of regulations respecting time limits for issuing permits under section 73 of SARA, or for refusing to do so, and specifying the circumstances under which those time limits do not apply. These amendments to SARA are key elements of the Government of Canada’s Responsible Resource Development Plan.

The Permits Authorizing an Activity Affecting Listed Wildlife Species Regulations will contribute to the implementation of the Responsible Resource Development Plan. The latter promotes business confidence and strengthens environmental standards by, among other things, paving the way forlegally binding time limits and clearly defined information requirements for permitting processes. The Regulations are anticipated to contribute to consistency, predictability and transparency in the SARA permitting process by providing applicants with clear and measurable service standards.
