East Coast Environmental Law Publishes New Legal Toolkits on Environmental Impact Assessment Processes in Atlantic Canada

October 16, 2020

East Coast Environmental Law is pleased to share four new resources that are now available on our website. 

Thanks to diligent assistance from our summer students and student volunteers, along with generous support from two local law foundations, we have added four new volumes to the East Coast Environmental Law Summary Series, addressing environmental impact assessment processes at the federal and provincial levels throughout Atlantic Canada. 

Wherever you are in Atlantic Canada, one of our latest legal toolkits is for you:

Each toolkit offers an overview of the federal impact assessment regime under Canada's Impact Assessment Act, along with an overview of the provincial regime in question, highlighting key opportunities for public involvement in each process.

By enhancing public understanding of environmental assessment processes, we hope to help individuals, community groups, and others feel more empowered to contribute to those processes and make sure that they are as meaningful as possible.

Our work on Environmental Impact Assessment: A Legal Toolkit for Newfoundland and Labrador was generously supported by the Law Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador, and our work on Environmental Impact Assessment: A Legal Toolkit for Nova Scotia was generously supported by the Law Foundation of Nova Scotia. We are grateful to both institutions for their support.
