As prescribed in The Contaminated Sites Remediation Act, passed in 1996, the Clean Environment Commission has certain responsibilities whereby the hearing process can be invoked in order to review questions of liability for the remediation of contaminated sites. The Commission can also be called upon to mediate disputes respecting the apportionment of remediation costs. Finally, under this legislation the Commission can be asked by the Minister of Conservation to provide advice and recommendations regarding proposed contaminated site remediation plans. Procedures have been developed by the Commission to conduct such hearings.
