Refocusing Federal Environmental Assessment Policy
DATE: October 14th – 15th, 2014
LOCATION: Tabaret Hall – University Of Ottawa
With the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act undergoing Parliamentary review this year, it is time to take stock, identify what is working well and what needs to be improved in federal environmental practice. At this year’s Annual Conference, we will examine the policy landscape with a view to identifying policy and practice recommendations that OAIA could eventually present to the Parliamentary Review. We are inviting various perspectives on selected issues about environmental assessment practice to provide insight on relevant considerations and options. The two day conference will cater to a broad audience with Day One focusing on broad policy issues related to federal EA. Day Two is aimed at practitioners and will feature a series of panel discussions on topics such as regional EA, approaches to stakeholder involvement, outcomes-based EA and adaptive management. The annual conference also provides students a chance to present posters on EA practice.
