Environmental Records Review

What is an environmental records review?

An environmental records review shares property information related to:

  • incidents of property contamination (e.g. oil spills);
  • presence of underground petroleum storage tanks;
  • status of any environmental protection orders or environmental approvals/permits issued on a property; and
  • whether or not a property is entered on the Department's Contaminated Site Registry.

Why would I need an environmental records review?

People such as consultants, lawyers, and financial institution representatives often request environmental information of a property before it changes ownership.

Applicants can fill out and submit an Environmental Records Review Application Form.

$54.77 is the fee for each principal and associated residential property.
