Join us for a free public legal education session on environmental impact assessment in Newfoundland and Labrador.
Staff lawyers from East Coast Environmental Law will present information and facilitate discussion on the new federal Impact Assessment Act, the provincial Environmental Assessment Regulations and the Regional Assessment process.
During this session, we will explore questions including:
• What are the different stages of an environmental assessment?
• What is the difference between a federal and provincial assessment?
• How are environmental assessment decisions made?
• How can members of the public participate in an environmental assessment?
• How will federal assessment change under the new law?
East Coast Environmental Law is an environmental law charity based in Nova Scotia and working on issues of concern to Atlantic Canadians. Our work is centered around ensuring environmental laws in Atlantic Canada are founded on responsible, transparent and inclusive decision-making. We encourage the development and fair application of innovative and effective environmental laws through: Public Education; Collaboration; and Legal Action.
Light refreshments will be served during the public legal education workshop.
This workshop session is sponsored in part by the Manolis L Citizen Response Committee.
