The terms of reference for Kitchener-Waterloo to London section will provide a framework for planning and the environmental assessment, which will look at how all aspects of the project could affect the environment, including how stations are built, track locations, energy requirements, expected ridership, and parking needs.

New train and safety standards will be developed with Transport Canada to inform the environmental assessment process, as high-speed rail will be a new service for Ontario and Canada,

The high-speed rail line will serve more than seven million people. The proposed stops are Windsor, Chatham, London, Kitchener-Waterloo, Guelph and Toronto Union Station, with a connection to Pearson International Airport.

"This historic project is the first of its kind in Canada, and will be one of the largest planning and environmental assessments our province has ever completed," said minister of transport Steven Del Duca.
