The theme of the 2009 conference, “Environmental Assessment at a Crossroads”, was designed to convey that environmental assessment professionals find themselves in an operating environment of unusual uncertainty.

The factors contributing to this uncertainty include:
  • how to consider climate change in EA;
  • the pressure to speed up EA processes in Ontario;
  • anticipated Federal Government reforms to EA that will emerge from the review in 2010;
  • the duty to consult Aboriginal Peoples and their interest in extended consultation processes;
  • the push for more attention to the social environment and especially to health impacts; and,
  • the desire of professionals to retain what they view to be the essential integrity of best practices in EA and SEA.
