CALGARY, April 19, 2012 /CNW/ - On Tuesday, April 17th, the federal government revealed plans to cut the number of federal departments involved in environmental assessments from 40 to just three and hand the bulk of the responsibility for environmental oversight to the provinces. It will also set a limit of 24 months for the approval process. How will this new regulatory framework impact you and your organization?
At The Canadian Institute's Forum on "Environmental Law & Regulation in Alberta", learn how these changes will impact your business; which projects will merit federal involvement and what processes will be put in place to ensure that Alberta has the ability to conduct environmental assessments on its own.
Our expert panel of speakers will guide you through the coming changes and will address other critical issues including:
- How to protect yourself and your organization from risk in an era of increased environmental enforcement in Alberta
- The potential impact of the Species at Risk Act on project development
- Defining the real environmental impact of Hydro Fracking and preparing for potential regulation
- Ensuring compliance with water regulation and management and understanding the new federal/provincial monitoring system
