Quebec streamlines infrastructure projects to boost post-COVID activity
By Patrick Flannery
The Quebec National Assembly has passed Bill 66, which removes or eases several regulations for 181 large infrastructure projects. Most of the projects are transportation-related, but there are several hospital and long-term-care home projects in there as well. Regulations for land expropriation, environmental review, zoning and awarding contracts have been altered.
The law firm Osler has a good explanation of the changes.
