The 2018 Summit will examine emerging trends and recent developments in environmental, energy and natural resources law at the federal and provincial levels.

Leading experts from across Canada will provide updates on new case law, legislative and regulatory developments, and federal and provincial enforcement trends.

Topics will include: ethics in investigations, bio-refining, who bears the responsibility for end of life environmental obligations, federal environmental review and indigenous assessments, and recent developments across Canada

May 31 Reception

The reception this year will be held at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and will include a tour of the world’s only museum that explores human rights as a concept and aspiration. It is not built around a collection of artifacts, but designed to illuminate a powerful idea. Visitors embark on an inspiring journey from darkness to light – exploring global human rights stories through a uniquely Canadian lens.
