The ministry supports the “polluter pays” principle, which holds that those responsible for causing contamination should be responsible for paying to clean it up. In the case of contaminated sites, those clients wishing to use ministry services to help them meet their legal obligations can do so for a fee. Fees for these services are set out in the Contaminated Sites Regulation, under the Environmental Management Act.
