Think Tank Event - Environmental Review in Canada and the United States

On the morning of March 18, the Wilson Center's Canada Institute will host Helen Cutts, the Vice-President for Policy Development for the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency for a round table discussion on the environmental review process in Canada and the United States. Our expert panel will give the views both in and outside government on the contrasting procedures, what role sub-federal governments play in the process, how both systems incorporate the needs of native groups into their decision making, and what role concerns about climate change should play in approving or rejecting a project.

Speakers:

Helen Cutts, Vice-President for Policy Development, Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency

Stephen Hazell, Director of Conservation and General Counsel, Nature Canada
