Dear Paov,

On October 13, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that the federal Impact Assessment Act (IAA) is unconstitutional. So what happens now?

You’re invited to join West Coast Environmental Law and our colleagues for two upcoming webinars to delve into the Court’s ruling, its implications, and what comes next.

Assessing the Impact: Ottawa, Alberta, and next steps for the Impact Assessment Act

Monday, Oct. 30
10:00-11:00am PT / 1:00-2:00pm ET

Join top environmental lawyers Anna Johnston and Stephen Hazell to hear why the Court’s ruling wasn't the outcome Alberta was hoping for, and what Ottawa needs to do to get the Impact Assessment Act back in action.

Anna and Stephen will share their in-depth analysis and perspectives on the SCC’s opinion, as well as key takeaways for organizations, practitioners and individuals engaging with federal impact assessment.

Assessing the Impact: Ottawa, Alberta and next steps for Canadian climate policy

Tuesday, Nov. 14
10:00-11:15am PT / 1:00-2:15pm ET

How will the Court’s opinion impact the future of climate policy in Canada, especially as the government faces pushback from provinces?

Legal experts Anna Johnston, David V. Wright and Anna McIntosh will share their perspectives on the shifting landscape for reviewing climate impacts in assessments, as well as the implications for new and existing climate policies like the government’s planned oil and gas emissions cap.
