Better for People, Smarter for Business Act Bill 132

Ontario Pork’s response to proposed changes to Bill 132, Better for People, Smarter for Business Act, 2019, specifically proposed changes under the Nutrient Management Act (NMA)

Ontario Pork supports the Ontario government’s efforts to remove unnecessary and burdensome red tape. Ontario Pork provided comments specific to the use of, and authority for, any Administrative Monetary Penalties (AMP), as well as participation in any future regulation development.  

Ontario Pork is not opposed to appropriate compliance and enforcement tools to encourage compliance with the Nutrient Management Act and to respond to situations where nutrient management results in an impact on neighboring surface water or groundwater and /or a producer fails to follow a Provincial Officers order. 

Ontario Pork also recognizes and acknowledges the current Informed Judgement Matrix decision making tool utilized by the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation, and Parks (MECP).
