Canada’s economy increasingly revolves around projects devoted to the extraction of its natural resources and the production of energy. As resource extraction projects gain attention, so too does the role of lawyers in the field. More and more, lawyers are advising clients and appearing before courts and tribunals on matters such as the environmental assessment of mining projects, the development of renewable energy generation projects, and the intersecting Aboriginal consultation process and accommodation issues.
This program will feature leading experts and practitioners discussing legal regimes and challenges associated with resource extraction projects such as mining and oil and gas extraction, spanning both north and south of 60. Substantive topics will address off-shore resource development, natural gas extraction, environmental assessment issues, renewable energy, streamlining regulatory processes, sustainable development, and corporate social responsibility. Participants will gain a better understanding of how this burgeoning area is unfolding on the international, national, and local levels. This is a premier program with an added northern lens – not to be missed given the natural resource development opportunities north of 60.
Summit attendees are welcome to attend the NEERLS full-day business meeting on June 22. This is a terrific opportunity to get to know the NEERLS executive, to learn more about section activities, and to get involved!
