The Frequently Asked Environmental Law Questions series is made possible by grants from Alberta Ecotrust, Dow Chemical Canada Inc., Western Economic Diversification Canada and by charitable donations to the Environmental Law Centre.


This site provides information about that law designed to help users safely cope with their own legal needs. But legal information is not the same as legal advice – the application of law to an individual’s specific circumstances. Although we go to great lengths to make sure our information is accurate and useful, we recommend you consult a lawyer if you want professional assurance that our information, and your interpretation of it, is appropriate to your particular situation.


The Frequently Asked Questions series was prepared between 1999 and 2001. Some information in this series may be out of date. Please refer to the Environmental Law Centre’s “Fact Sheets” page for more up-to-date information or contact the Centre to speak to our staff about your questions.
