Regional Approaches to Fracking Across Canada (RECORDING) 

May 15, 2014
Online

Presented by CBA's National Environmental, Energy and Resources Law Section

Hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking”, involves the use of chemicals and water to break apart rock to extract natural gas.  This practice is controversial and has given rise to many different approaches across Canada. Our legal experts will discuss the different regulatory regimes, environmental issues and litigation across Canada surrounding the use of fracking.  This webinar will also examine some of the legal challenges that have been mounted by various Aboriginal and public interest groups to prevent its practice.

The session will conclude with a reflection on what Canadian practitioners might learn from the US experience with fracking - including the development of a regulatory regime and the outcomes of case law related to fracking.
