The ELC presents A Model Environmental and Sustainability Assessment Law (without annotations). The Model Law incorporates environmentally sound principles, enabling sustainable decision-making to become part of Canada’s landscape.
The Environmental Law Centre extends its thanks to the funders of the Model Environmental Assessment Law Project: the Alberta Law Foundation and the Alberta Ecotrust Foundation. Without their generous support and vision, this project would not have been possible.
The Environmental Law Centre also wishes to thank the members of the advisory committee – which included Robert Gibson, Stephen Hazell, Meinhard Doelle and others – for their valuable contribution of time and expertise. The members of the advisory committee provided the Environmental Law Centre with advice, critique and feedback throughout the Model Environmental Assessment Law Project. However, this Model Law is the product of the Environmental Law Centre. The Model Environmental Assessment Law represents the views and conclusions of only the Environmental Law Centre.
The Environmental Law Centre (ELC) has been seeking strong and effective environmental laws since it was founded in 1982. The ELC is dedicated to providing credible, comprehensive and objective legal information regarding natural resources, energy and environmental law, policy and regulation in Alberta. The ELC’s mission is to educate and champion for strong laws and rights so all Albertans can enjoy clean water, clean air and a healthy environment. Our vision is a society where laws secure an environment that sustains current and future generations.
As a charity, the Environmental Law Centre depends on your financial support. Help us to continue to educate and champion for strong environmental laws, through tools such as our blog and all of our other resources, so that all Albertans can enjoy a healthy environment. Your support makes a difference.
