Environmental Planning and Assessment Caucus
Action Alert: Canada’s Environmental Assessment Law Is Under Attack
Please check out our alert, and take action! Call your MP, write a letter to the editor, talk to your friends and neighbours!
The Environmental Planning and Assessment (EPA) Caucus is always looking for knowledgeable, passionate individuals to participate in the Caucus’ activities and projects.
At this time, the EPA Caucus is involved in many projects, including:
- The 7-year review of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act (CEAA)
- Participation in the Regulatory Action Committee, a multi-stakeholder committee that advises the Minister of Environment on regulations and guidelines needed to implement the CEAA
If funds are available, EPA Caucus members meet in-person twice a year – once in the spring and another meeting in Ottawa every fall. Their meetings offer caucus members an opportunity to reconnect with colleagues, discuss ongoing challenges and strategy around EA in Canada.
If you are part of an RCEN member organization and would like to get involved in the EPA Caucus, please contact the caucus coordinator at the information listed on the right. If your organization would like to join the RCEN, please see our Membership page.
