Summary:During the past decade engineering geology mapping within Canada has responded to the economic and social needs of the nation. Oil and gas discoveries in Arctic regions spawned extensive engineering geology mapping projects by both government agencies and private enterprise. In the late 1970's, political initiatives for the development of Ontario's northland resulted in the Ontario Engineering Geology Terrain Study. This study was carried out by consultants for the Ontario government. Of current interest is the mapping that has been carried out for the Ontario Waste Management Corporation to aid in the location of facilities to treat hazardous liquid industrial waste and other hazardous waste, and to dispose of the treated residues.—Modified journal abstract.
