Call for Delegates: Tailings Management Framework Mine Financial Security Program Working Group

Initiative: 
Tailings Management Framework Mine Financial Security Program Working Group
Position: 
ENGO Members (3)
Application Deadline: 
24 Apr 2017 (All day)

On March 13, 2015, the Government of Alberta released the Tailings Management Framework for the Mineable Athabasca Oil Sands to enhance the management of fluid tailings in this region. The Framework provides direction to manage fluid tailings volumes during and after mine operation in order to manage and decrease liability and environmental risk resulting from the accumulation of fluid tailings on the landscape. The Framework can be found online.

Implementation of the Framework is currently underway, and a key priority project in this implementation process is the revision of the Mine Financial Security Program to meet the intent of the Framework. As a result, Alberta Environment and Parks is establishing a Tailings Management Framework Mine Financial Security Program Working Group.

Alberta Environment and Parks would like to invite three representatives from the ENGO community to actively participate in the working group. Read more »

Free Film Viewing and Discussion: Water on the Table

Mar 22 2017 - 5:00pm - 7:00pm

Please join the Council of Canadians, Edmonton Chapter, on March 22, 2017 to view the award winning film “Water on the Table”.  Inform yourself about why one of our most precious inheritances is being threatened and how you can help to save it.

Water On The Table from LizMars on Vimeo.

Is water a commercial good like Coca-Cola, or a human right like air?

Featuring best-selling author, activist and public figure Maude Barlow and her crusade to have water declared a human right, protected from privatization, WATER ON THE TABLE explores Canada’s relationship to its freshwater, arguably its most precious natural resource. The film shadows Barlow over the course of a year as she leads an unrelenting schedule as the U.N. Senior Advisor on Water to Father Miguel d’Escoto Brockmann, President of the 63rd Session of the United Nations. Read more »
