Alberta Land-use Planning Legislation Introduced

Since the release of the Draft Land-use Framework (LUF) in May 2008 several parallel processes have been taking place to advance the LUF from a policy initiative into a functioning land use management framework.

A collaborative of over ten non-government organizations across the province has coordinated efforts to shape these processes and will continue to do. Visit Alberta by Design or our member sites for updates. 

1. Alberta Land-use Planning Legislation Introduced

New legislation is a big step forward but leaves much to Cabinet's discretion

On April 28th, the Alberta government tabled the Alberta Land Stewardship Act (ALSA), Bill 36. The bill is a step toward the system of land-use planning promised by Alberta's Land-use Framework. The bill empowers the provincial government with new powers to guide regional land-use planning - a step away from conflicting decision-making bodies and the dominance of municipal planning on the landscape. Key amendments, however, will be required to make the ALSA effective.

Seminar: Ecosystem-based Conservation Planning with Herb Hammond

Apr 8 2009 - 9:00am

Ecosystem-based Conservation Planning to maintain ecological integrity in the boreal forest

Presented by the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society and the Environmental Research & Studies Centre

Abstract

Maintaining ecological integrity requires maintaining the natural assemblages of species and ecological processes across the range of spatial and temporal scales. Natural reflects pre-industrial ecological conditions, and includes Indigenous management systems. Ecosystem-based conservation planning defines ecological limits, which are a practical application of the precautionary principle. Ecological limits constitute thresholds past which perturbations from human activities are outside of the range of natural variability. Exceeding ecological limits results in fundamental change to ecosystems, not fluctuations within ecosystem composition, structure, and function as those caused by natural disturbances. Ecological limits are defined for both physical and biological parameters. Read more »
