Event description
The New Federal Impact Assessment Act and a National Energy Corridor

About this Event

The Canadian Institute of Resources Law invites you to attend a free public lecture entitled:

“The New Federal Impact Assessment Act and a National Energy Corridor”

This session will provide a basic introduction to the legal landscape of Indigenous territory across Canada and then relate that context to the federal regime for review and approval of major energy transport projects (with a focus on pipelines). The presentation will include discussion of the new federal Impact Assessment Act (previously Bill C-69) and the national energy corridor concept, with a particular focus on engagement and consultation with Indigenous communities. The session will end with a Q & A period for registered participants.
