Achieving net-zero: How a climate accountability law will get us there

Nov 12 2020 - 12:30pm

From Ecojustice:

The climate emergency is putting the safety of Canadians at risk. Changing the course of this crisis is within our control — but it will require the federal government to take decisive action now.

Canada has missed every greenhouse gas emission target it has ever set. Without a law that holds our elected leaders accountable for reducing Canada’s emissions, we run the risk of missing our 2030 target and our goal of net-zero by 2050.

Climate change considerations in the new federal impact assessment regime

Jun 27 2020 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

Canada’s new federal impact assessment legislation came into force in August 2019. It includes explicit requirements to take into account climate change considerations during assessment and decision-making phases. What does this mean? Details are still emerging, primarily in the form of draft guidance set to be finalized in the very near future. This Saturday Morning at the Law School session presents the new legislative context and comments on the details of climate change considerations available to date, including implications for review and approval of major resource projects. The presentation will also relate this material to the broader context of implementing Canada’s international climate change commitments and related domestic law and policy measures.

This event is sponsored by the Alberta Law Foundation.
