Expanded Capacity to Address Illegal Dumping & Other Violations


The Resource Enforcement Division within the Department of Fisheries, Forestry and Agriculture has now been tasked to enforce regulations under the Environmental Protection Act and Water Resources Act.


The move was made in an effort to curb illegal dumping, address issues around abandoned vehicles and damage to water resources, and ensure compliance with the Environmental Assessment process,


In addition to this new enforcement capacity by the Resource Enforcement Division, current efforts provided by Digital Government and Service NL environmental protection officers and Environment and Climate Change water resources officials will continue.
