Event Details


The Expert Panel wants to hear from you!


The Minister of Environment and Climate Change has announced the establishment of an Expert Panel to conduct a Review of Environmental Assessment Processes.  The Panel intends to engage broadly with Indigenous peoples, key stakeholders and all Canadians.


Visit the Panel’s website at for information on the Expert Panel’s review and mandate, as well as information on the ways in which to participate.


Your input is important to this review.  Please participate online or in-person and share your expertise and experiences with the Expert Panel.


Want to participate in person?

Observe or make a formal presentation to the Panel, or take part in workshops across the country.  These workshops, scheduled in the evenings, are dialogues in which all Canadians can actively participate – from those with past experience or high levels of knowledge about environmental assessments, to those seeking to learn and engage with them for the first time.  Panel members will be listening carefully to the discussions and will interact with participants throughout the session.


The Expert Panel will be in Prince Rupert on December 8 and 9, 2016 Highliner Plaza Hotel and Conference Centre.

Want to participate on-line? 


Send a written submission, or fill out a Choicebook.  The Choicebook is an in-depth survey-like tool where participants can learn about the key issues being considered, and then send their views to the Panel.  It’s designed to allow all Canadians to participate, whether they are highly knowledgeable about environmental assessments or learning about them for the first time.


The Panel’s final recommendations provided to the Minister will be informed by the collective knowledge and views expressed during the review process.



Send an email to the Expert Panel.
