Summary: 

In June 2017, environmental assessment (EA) experts from across Canada gathered in Ottawa to discuss how to implement next-generation EA principles in Canadian legislation. The Federal Environmental Assessment Reform Summit II built upon the outcomes of the first Environmental Assessment Reform Summit, held in May 2016.  

These outcomes focus on what participants and organizers identified as the key issues and challenges encountered in federal EA processes, and what needs to be included in new legislation to achieve credible, fair and effective EA processes that respect Indigenous authority, promote reconciliation, ensure ecological integrity, and result in equitably distributed lasting environmental and socio-economic well-being.
