The New Federal Impact Assessment Act and Alberta Energy Projects

Implementation of the new Impact Assessment Act is now underway, changing the process for federal assessment of energy projects. While the reformed regime resembles its predecessor in many ways, it also includes many changes, including new requirements with respect to climate change, the rights and interests of Indigenous peoples, sustainability, and economic considerations. Despite much criticism of the Impact Assessment Act in public and political realms, including during the law reform process that led to Bill C-69, implications for energy projects remain not well understood. It has been unclear, for example, the extent to which the changed federal process will actually affect whether a project is approved or not. This session will provide an overview of the new federal regime and what it may mean in practical terms for energy projects, with an emphasis on the Alberta context.

This workshop will conclude with a Q and A session for registered participants.
