Quebec streamlines infrastructure projects to boost post-COVID activity

The Quebec National Assembly has passed Bill 66, which removes or eases several regulations for 181 large infrastructure projects.

Regulations for land expropriation, environmental review, zoning and awarding contracts have been altered.

The law firm Osler has a good explanation of the changes.
