Section 49.1 of YESAA (2015) is a recent amendment to the legislation affecting projects that have been previously assessed by YESAB and require a license renewal or amendment. In these situations, YESAB will now require proponents to provide written confirmation from a Decision Body that an assessment is required, before an assessment can begin.

YESAB will accept written confirmation from a Decision Body that an assessment is required by way of letter or email.

YESAB encourages proponents of projects requiring the renewal or amendment of a license to speak directly to the Decision Body in advance of submitting a project proposal to a designated office or on the YESAB Online Registry.  Proponents must obtain and include written confirmation from a Decision Body that an assessment is required before submitting a project to YESAB.  For more information on this change contact the YESAB Head Office 867 668-6420 or reference section 49.1 of YESAA (2015).
