Get the Real Dirt on Remediation Certificates (Webinar)

May 12 2010 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm


When contaminated land is remediated and re-used, one of the biggest concerns for owners and developers is whether the government will hold them liable in the future for the land’s condition, especially if remediation standards change.  In 2009, Alberta Environment introduced the remediation certificate as a voluntary tool that could address some of those concerns.

On May 12, 2010, 12:00 noon – 1:00 pm, join Cindy Chiasson, Executive Director of the Environmental Law Centre, to learn more about remediation certificates.  Topics will include:

  • What is a remediation certificate?
  • Do I need one?
  • How do I get one?
  • What protection will it give me?
  • Where can I get more information about remediation certificates?

Making the Connection: Water and Land in Alberta

Water Matters has released a new report entitled "Making the Connection: Water and Land in Alberta".

In Alberta, 90,000 square kilometres of forests safeguard the upper reaches of the Athabasca and Saskatchewan River systems, and more than 100,000 square kilometres of wetlands store and filter water over 18 per cent of the province. Making the Connection: Water and Land in Alberta, a new report by Water Matters, concludes that the Alberta government must protect these and other watershed resources to prevent a water crisis in the province in the coming decades. This is the easiest, most effective and least costly way to maintain healthy ecosystems and the benefits they provide including clean, abundant drinking water, sustainable fisheries, and water for agriculture and other industrial uses. The best part? It will also save taxpayers billions of dollars over the long term.
