Abstract: The current literature discussing brownfield redevelopment focuses on the past gaps within brownfield redevelopment policy. Authors discuss the costs of clean up and liability issues, and repetitively list the strengths and weaknesses of brownfield redevelopment. After conducting an institutional analysis and completing key informant interviews on persons involved in remediation, a better picture was painted of the current brownfield situation. The study was focused on the City of Guelph and the Region of Waterloo, to better understand brownfield redevelopment policies and incentive programs. The interviews provided more information on these incentive programs to determine the strengths and weaknesses of each approach. The paper provides up to date information pertaining to incentive programs, legislation, and potential solutions to make improvements to the legislation that governs brownfield redevelopment.
