Aboriginal Groups: Environmental Assessment
This introductory course provides participants with an overview of the statutory requirements under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012 (CEAA 2012) related to Aboriginal groups. It also explains the Crown’s duty to consult with Aboriginal groups when the Crown contemplates an activity that might adversely impact potential or established Aboriginal or Treaty rights. The course provides practical information on how the legal duty to consult is integrated into the environmental assessment (EA) of a designated project for which the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the Agency) is the responsible authority and when the Agency supports EAs by Review Panel.
The course highlights the consultation process outlined in the Updated Guidelines for Federal Officials to Fulfill the Duty to Consult and offers practical examples of how the Agency fulfills its consultation objectives. The course provides a high-level overview of the step-by-step consultation approach conducted by the Agency.
