OTTAWA, Sept. 15, 2016 /CNW/ - Today, the Expert Panel tasked with reviewing environmental assessment processes announced a series of in-person engagement activities.
The Expert Panel will be travelling the country from September 19 to December 15, 2016, to hear the views of Indigenous Peoples, stakeholders and all Canadians on the federal environmental assessment process. Canadians can visit www.EAreview.ca to register to participate in workshops or to make presentations to the Panel. There will also be opportunities to provide input online or attend any event as an observer.
Input gathered both in-person and online will help inform the Expert Panel's review. A report, including recommendations, is due to the Minister of Environment and Climate Change in January 2017.
"I and my fellow Panel members are excited and honoured to have been provided the opportunity to contribute to the Government's review of environmental assessment processes. The Panel intends to engage Indigenous Peoples, stakeholders and all Canadians in a number of ways throughout the review. We look forward to Canadians across the country sharing their expertise and their experiences with us."
