Public access to oil sands documents

The Environmental Law Centre (ELC) is hosting a range of oil sands documents requested by Martha Kostuch under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. Public access to the documents is available through the ELC's library, which is open Monday - Friday, 8:30 am-12:00 noon and 1:00-4:30 pm (noon hour access available by prior arrangement).

The first package of documents, providing oil sands royalty information for the time frame January 1, 2005 - August 15, 2006, was forwarded by Alberta Energy in December 2007. The ELC has recently received the second package of documents, related to the Mineable Oil Sands Strategy for the time frame January 2005 - May 2005. The public can access both packages of documents at the ELC library, #800, 10025 - 106 Street, Edmonton, ph. 780-424-5099 or 1-800-661-4238.
