Operating a Business Legally in Ontario
 
The Environmental Protection Act (EPA) is legislation in Ontario that protects both the environment as well as the citizens of the province. One of the most important sections of the act (Section 9) states, "no person shall, except in accordance with an Environmental Compliance Approval (ECA) issued by the Ministry of the Environment (MOE), construct, alter, extend, or replace any plant, structure, equipment, apparatus, mechanism or thing that may discharge a contaminant into any part of the natural environment.” Under the EPA the definition of contaminant also includes noise and vibrations.
