CELA responded to the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (“EIS”) for a proposed uranium mine on the Patterson Lake peninsula in northern Saskatchewan. CELA’s legal analysis of the Draft EIS was accompanied by two expert reports: “Radon and Gamma Monitoring & Workers’ Health" by Luc Lance, and “Source Water Protection” by Dr. Robert Patrick.
In this blog, CELA follows up with individuals from such a community in Northern Ontario, who weighed in on the government’s recent EA reforms, to understand potential impacts to the environment and community health.
Environment North's presentation to the Joint Review Panel for this mining EA critiques the mining proponent's lack of consideration of climate, sustainability and socio-economic impacts like community well-being.
CELA joins the many Indigenous Peoples, climate scientists, environmental organizations, legal experts and concerned citizens calling on both Canada and Ontario to pause the process described in the Draft Agreement to Conduct a Regional Assessment in the Ring of Fire…
CELA has submitted comments on the Draft Tailored Impact Statement Guidelines & Public Participation Plan - Upper Beaver Gold Project (Reference No. 82960) to the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada.
The Friends of the Attawapiskat River are once again urging the Impact Assessment Agency to suspend the Regional Assessment whose process, timelines and methods of engagement have not been done in full consultation and with the consent of Indigenous community members, their customs, knowledge systems and inherent laws.
