The Environmental Protection Tribunal of Canada (EPTC) is a group of expert adjudicators (called “Review Officers”) appointed under sections 243 and 244 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999.

Review Officers conduct reviews of Compliance Orders issued under the Antarctic Environmental Protection Act, Canada Wildlife Act, Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999, Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act, International River Improvements Act, and Migratory Birds Convention Act, 1994.

Review Officers also conduct reviews of Administrative Monetary Penalties (“AMPs”) issued under the Environmental Violations Administrative Monetary Penalties Act and Environmental Violations Administrative Monetary Penalties Regulations. AMPs may be issued in respect of prescribed violations of the following statutes: Antarctic Environmental Protection Act and its regulations, Canada Wildlife Act and its regulations, Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 and its regulations, Migratory Birds Convention Act, 1994 and its regulations, International River Improvements Act and its regulations, and Wild Animal and Plant Protection and Regulation of International and Interprovincial Trade Act and its regulations.

Prior to February 2019, the EPTC was known as Environmental Protection Review Canada.
