POSTPONED: UNESCO World Heritage Committee NGO Roundtable: Wood Buffalo National Park

Jun 3 2016 - 3:00pm - 5:30pm

POSTPONED:

…Parks Canada has sent an official request to the World Heritage Centre to postpone the reactive monitoring mission to Wood Buffalo National Park in light of the severe impacts of the Fort McMurray fire and the ongoing state of emergency across the region.  This decision was informed by consultations with a number of different partners involved in the mission, including the Mikisew Cree First Nation and the Government of Alberta. As we considered the appropriate timing for this mission, we were concerned that we might pose an additional burden on some of the communities that have accepted evacuees if we were to proceed with the May 26-June 4 dates. 

From: Ashley Campbell, Heritage Designations and Programs, Parks Canada

As you may be aware, the Mikisew Cree First Nation filed a petition to the UNESCO World Heritage Committee in December 2014 to request that Wood Buffalo National Park be added to the List of World Heritage in Danger. The petition identified a number of concerns related to the impacts of current and planned hydroelectric dams, oil sands development, and climate change on the ecology and hydrology of the Peace-Athabasca Delta. 

In response, the UNESCO World Heritage Committee requested the Government of Canada to invite experts from the World Heritage Centre (WHC) and International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) to conduct a reactive monitoring mission to Wood Buffalo National Park. Parks Canada is responsible for organizing this mission. Mr. Tilman Jaeger will represent the WHC and Dr. Stephen Davis will represent the IUCN.

The experts will have an opportunity to travel to Fort Smith (May 26 to 29), Fort Chipewyan (May 29 to June 2), Fort McMurray (June 2 to 3) and Edmonton (June 3 to 4) and meet with a wide range of Indigenous Peoples, federal/provincial/territorial officials, industry representatives, NGOs, and other stakeholders.

Canadian Environmental Network Annual General Meeting

Mar 12 2016 - 8:00am

From: Josh Brandon, Chair, RCEN Board of Directors

Since 1977 RCEN has been forging connections among environmental organizations, activists and governments in order to promote collaboration and communication. By bringing together Canada’s environmental grassroots through a national network, we amplify each member’s voice and impact.

When RCEN’s core funding was cut in 2011, we didn’t go away. The experience forced us to scale back our activities, but we continued to give environmental organizations and activists a space to come together and work on the issues that matter to them.

With a new government in Ottawa we are excited to seek out new partnerships and new sources of funding. We believe that RCEN still has an important role to play on the national stage.

RCEN now has a chance to re-imagine our place in this country. Politics, culture, technology and the economy have changed in the last five years and we must all adapt to the new reality. Now is the time to decide how we will use the opportunities that are in front of us. How can RCEN come back stronger, leaner, more resilient, more independent, more responsive to a changing world and our members’ needs? Read more »
