Proposed Exploration Permits in the Ring of Fire

In response to multiple proposed mineral exploration permits in the Ring of Fire, the Canadian Environmental Law Association, the Friends of the Attawapiskat River, MiningWatch Canada and Wildlife Conservation Society Canada have asked the Ministry of Northern Development and Mines to pause decision making and only proceed when public and Indigenous engagement can be achieved and the participatory rights set out in the EBR fulfilled. The signatories also urge the Ministry to consider the combined, cumulative effects of these proposed permits which span over 1300 claims.
