Environmental Enforcement

Students study, in detail, environmental enforcement in Ontario. Abatement procedures, abatement tools and management strategies, including ISO 14000, are examined. Spill clean-up and legal defenses for environmental charges are examined from an industry perspective. Also, common law and its expanding role in environmental protection are examined with case studies to demonstrate the common law implications in environmental situations. Trends in environmental policy are studied so that students can be more aware of probable directions in future environmental enforcement activities. Important government and private sector websites are explored so that graduates can remain current throughout their careers and participate in life-long learning.
