The ABCs of Environmental Jurisdiction

The Environmental Law Centre published the report “ABCs of Environmental Jurisdiction” in March 2003.

Here is the Preface of the report:

The ABC’s of Environmental Jurisdiction is designed to provide the general public with an alphabetical guide to how environmental issues are regulated in Alberta. The ABC’s consists of two main sections: the Primers and the Entries. The Primers are short, general introductions to issues or subjects that arise often when looking at environmental jurisdiction. They may be referred to as needed during your review of the Entries, or as a starting point to develop familiarity with a Primer topic. The Entries are brief descriptions of how particular activities or environmental issues are regulated in Alberta. Each Entry sets out which levels of government – federal, provincial or municipal – are involved in regulating a particular activity or issue. The most important statutes and regulations are summarized, and specific government policy documents may also be referred to.
