Action Alert: Tell the Government to REJECT Teck Frontier Mine

This month the Government of Canada will approve or reject the massive 290 sq-km Teck Frontier oil sands mine project in northern Alberta. This project is a serious danger to our boreal forest and poses risks that cannot be ignored. If approved, the mine will threaten Wood Buffalo National Park, key species at risk, and Canada’s ability to reach its climate commitments. Nature can’t afford to support this project.

Call for Delegate: Wetlands Monitoring Technical Advisory Committee, Oil Sands Monitoring Program

Initiative: 
Wetlands Monitoring Technical Advisory Committee
Position: 
ENGO Member
Application Deadline: 
8 Nov 2019

In December 2017, the Government of Alberta and the Government of Canada signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that renewed each Government’s commitment to monitoring environmental impacts of oil sands development through the Oil Sands Monitoring Program (OSMP). The MOU established the mutual intentions of both governments to continue to collaborate and be accountable for the design and implementation of an integrated monitoring, evaluation and reporting system. It also confirmed the joint commitment to revise and establish, in cooperation with Indigenous Communities in the oil sands region, effective mechanisms for Indigenous participation in the design, implementation and governance of the monitoring system. This includes development of a comprehensive, ongoing agreement (the Operational Framework Agreement, finalized September 21, 2018) that defines the governance and implementation model to guide the decision-making structure and processes, roles and responsibilities, and the monitoring, research mandate, and objectives of the OSMP.
