AbstractThe National Guidelines for environmental assessment health impacts of noise are discussed. National Guidelines are needed with criteria, methodologies and rationales for determining, as required by Canadian Environmental Assessment Act (CEAA), whether project-related noise is likely to cause significant adverse health effects. A balanced working group must develop the document because of the complexity and broad range of issues. The guidance document should also contain a checklist so that proponents would know the basic information needed for an environmental noise assessment.
