Timely Change and Need: Justifying and Adopting Environmental Rights in Canadian Environmental Law
Jeudi 05 Novembre 2020 - 02:00pm - Jeudi 05 Novembre 2020 03:15pm
CELA is pleased to announce a series of webinars focused on the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA), our country's main environmental legislation used to evaluate and manage substances. In this webinar series, we explore how CEPA can be strengthened to protect vulnerable communities, including children, women of childbearing age, workers, people of low income, and Indigenous communities from toxic exposures, using improved, modern approaches to advance prevention strategies from hazardous substances.

Thursday November 5, 2020 at 2:00 pm AT (length 1 hr 15 min)

Our speakers will highlight the importance of advancing environmental rights in Canada by reviewing what it means to protect Canadians from environmental pollution and what other jurisdictions are doing on environmental rights, and identifying opportunities in the review of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act to include obligations on environmental rights. Our presenters include: Ryan Chawner, CELA Law Intern; Lisa Gue, David Suzuki Foundation and Elaine MacDonald, Ecojustice.
