•    conduct public meetings or hearings and provide advice and recommendations to the Minister; 
•    conduct investigations into specific environmental concerns and report back to the Minister; 
•    act as a mediator between two or more parties to an environmental dispute and report back to the Minister.

Hear from the Chair of the CEC and lawyers who have participated in past hearings about the hearing process and the role of the CEC. Gain insight into the ways legal counsel can effectively prepare to make submissions to the CEC.
