Ontario Excess Soil Symposium – December 6th 2017

The Canadian Urban Institute (CUI) is convening the Ontario Excess Soil Symposium on December 6, 2017 in Caledon Ontario to support an exchange of information and lessons learned about managing fill on soil Receiving Sites. In 2015, almost 26 million m3 of excess construction fill was generated across Ontario. Proper excess soil management supports the beneficial reuse of this soil while protecting human health and the environment.

The Ontario Ministry of Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) has recently developed Best Management Practices (BMP), a Policy Framework and a draft Regulatory Package to help guide management practices and policies relating to excess soil. The symposium conversation will help empower municipalities and other industry practitioners to understand this newly proposed regulatory landscape to support effective excess soil management.

Discussions will address:

  • Benefits of excess soil reuse for municipalities, communities and the environment;
  • Mitigating environmental and health risks related to excess soil management;
  • Implications of the new Proposed Excess Soil Regulatory Package by the MOECC;
  • Current policy & regulation options for municipalities, examples from successful case studies; and
  • Next steps for adopting and enforcing best practices.
