Workshops – Review of federal environmental and regulatory processes – October 24 and 26, 2016

On October 24 and 26, 2016, the 2FNQLSDI held two workshops on the ongoing review of federal environmental and regulatory processes in order to foster the sharing of information and to promote the active involvement of the First Nations in Quebec in the process.

October 24 was devoted to the Federal environmental assessment processes (associated with the CEAA) and the Modernization of the National Energy Board. The meeting objective was to identify issues and ways to take better account of the First Nations interests and rights in this process, and also to prepare interested parties to their meeting with the expert committee on the next day.
