who will deliver a presentation on:

Canada’s New Federal Environmental Regulations and Approval Processes


Abstract: On February 8, 2018, Catherine McKenna, federal Minister of Environment and Climate Change, tabled new legislation which will directly impact natural resource development in Canada, including mining projects. From climate change to Indigenous traditional knowledge, projects will face greater scrutiny – and potentially less certainty.

This summary will highlight the impact of changes to developing and operating a mine in Canada, including both pitfalls and opportunities. It addresses the federal government’s expanded framework for considering and conducting impact assessments and issuing certificates to natural resource project proponents, and what they mean to the mining industry in Canada.


BIO: Alan L. Ross is a natural resource sector veteran with nearing 25 years’ legal expertise in project development, regulation and environmental law. His experience spans across Canada and around the world with stints in investment banking and as a Deputy Minister-level role in the Alberta government as the Province’s envoy to Ottawa and the Toronto-Montreal Corridor.
