East Coast Environmental Law is pleased to announce that a Bill to create a Coastal Protection Act was introduced into the Nova Scotia Legislature today.

This law is highly anticipated by the public and by our organization. It has been a long time in the making, with calls for more legal protections for Nova Scotia’s coast reaching back at least several decades.

We look forward to reviewing the content of the Coastal Protection Act, and we hope that it will serve all Nova Scotians by providing rigorous and necessary environmental protection to the province's important and vulnerable coastline.
