Castle Mountain Resort Developments: Request an Environmental Assessment

Deadline: 
16 Nov 2018

A proposal for an expansion of the Castle Mountain Resort (CMR) and its activities has been announced, on a scale similar to that proposed in the early 1990’s by Vacation Alberta Corporation that led to the 1993 Natural Resources Conservation Board public hearings. As presented, CMR’s Master Development Plan (May 2017) will not require an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) unless people convince Alberta Environment and Parks that an EIA is essential and necessary.  

Take action. Submit a letter of concern by Friday, November 16 to Alberta Environment and Parks. Read more about Castle Mountain Resort Developments: Request an Environmental Assessment
