Last 4th and 5th of July, the FNQLSDI was mandated by Environment and Climate Change Canada to organise a workshop on the renewal of the Federal Contaminated Site Action Plan (FCSAP) planned for 2020 by ECCC.
The first day of the meeting was devoted to discussions with ECCC representatives in order to help shape proposals for addressing federal contaminated sites after 2020, when the current Federal Contaminated Sites Action Plan (FCSAP) ends.
On the second day of the meeting, the FNQLSDI took the opportunity so that representatives of Indigenous communities could benefit from presentations and discussions in order to address in greater depth the challenges posed by contaminated sites, including about the steps in contaminated site assessment and remediation as well as prevention.
