WCS Canada Comments - Letter to TRCA re 1802 Bayly St Pickering - March 2021
WCS Canada provides input into the special hearing of Toronto and Region Conservation Authority’s board of directors on March 12 on the development of 1802 Bayly Street in Pickering.
WCS Canada Comments - Planning the Regional Assessment in the Ring of Fire Area - January 2021
We responded to a request for input by the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada (IAAC) to support development of the Terms of Reference and Potential Agreement for the Regional Assessment (RA) of the Ring of Fire region in northern Ontario. We recommend that the IAAC must address COVID-19 and community crises affecting First Nation's priorities. We also suggest that outputs of the RA, as well as the Terms of Reference and Potential Agreements for the RA should be co-created with First Nations out of respect and acknowledgement of Indigenous rights and authority in the region.
WCS Canada Comments - Far North Act - January 2021
We provided comments on the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry’s proposed amendments to the Far North Act, 2010. We recommend working with First Nations communities to co-develop an equitable planning and decision-making process that enables and supports cooperative, proactive, regional-scale planning. We also recommend formally engaging in regional impact assessments and using a cumulative-effects framework.
WCS Canada Comments - Placer Mining in Yukon Wetlands - December 2020
We provided comments to the Yukon Water Board on the issue of placer mining in wetlands. Specifically, we recommend that mining only occurs once effective measures are in place to protect and reclaim wetlands, including mechanisms for funding, policies for wetland reclamation, and the identification and protection of high value lands.
WCS Canada Comments - Yukon's Mineral Development Strategy - August 2020
We provide recommendations with regards to Yukon's Mineral Development Strategy to be considered by an independent panel appointed by governments in Yukon.
