The Environmental Management and Protection Act of 2010 protects air, land, water resources and ecosystems of the province by managing and regulating potentially harmful activities and substances. It prohibits discharges that may adversely affect the environment, requires notification of such discharges, allows the Minister to investigate discharges and issue Environmental Protection Orders.

This act repeals and replaces the The Clean Air Act, The Environmental Management and Protection Act, 2002, The Litter Control Act and The State of the Environment Report Act.
