Event description

Description

This workshop is being conducted as part of the Oceans Protection Plan and the St. Lawrence Action Plan and aims to ensure that the Cumulative Effects Assessment Framework is built on sound scientific, local and traditional knowledge. Over the past year, groups have been mobilized across the country in each of the six pilot sites selected to help define the Cumulative Effects Assessment Framework for marine vessel activities. Discussions have been held on key stressors arising from vessel activities that may affect components of the environment of interest and/or concern to you; the elements to be considered in the selection of the temporal and geographical scales of the evaluations; and how the use of these areas by Indigenous communities may be affected by navigation activities.

The next workshop will focus on the valued components that should be included in the cumulative effects assessment in the St. Lawrence River and the scope of the analysis (temporal and spatial).

If you have questions related to the workshop, please send an email to TC.OPPQC-PPOQC.TC@tc.gc.ca.
