Event Details

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

 

The new Impact Assessment Act: Implications for Alberta’s Indigenous Peoples, Pipeline Approvals and Oil Sands Development"

On February 8, 2018, the Minister of Environment and Climate Change submitted Bill C-69 for first reading that proposes to enact a new Impact Assessment Act and a new Canadian Energy Regulator to replace the National Energy Board. What are the implications of the new Impact Assessment Act and related legislation (amending the Fisheries Act) for Alberta’s First Nations and Métis Groups? What would the changes mean for Pipeline approvals and oil sands development?

 

David Laidlaw, CIRL Research Fellow will make a presentation on these changes with discussion to follow

 

David K. Laidlaw is a Research Fellow with the Canadian Institute of Resources Law. He holds a B.Sc. in Computer Science and Economics from the University of Calgary in 1985, an LL.B. from Dalhousie University in 1988, and an LL.M. from the University of Calgary in 2013. He was admitted to the Law Society of Alberta in 1989. After 20 years of private practice in Calgary, David returned to Law School to secure an LL.M. Having practised in Aboriginal law in the early 1990’s his ongoing interest in the area has led him to research Canada’s law with respect to Indigenous peoples and its implications for indigenous groups and the public in Alberta and throughout Canada. In addition to Aboriginal law, his research interests include legal history and the philosophy of law.

 

David has co-authored an Aboriginal Consultation Handbook (2014) with Monique Passelac-Ross, and completed an Updated Handbook (2016), to account for the new Consultation Guidelines (2014) and other developments, funded by the Alberta Law Foundation.

 

 

This event is sponsored by the Alberta Law Foundation.
