Environmental Assessment

Context

Communities are bombarded with detailed technical documents from governments and mining companies and concurrence is assumed if comments are not submitted.

Actions

To ensure the community’s voice is heard, Treaty rights are respected and health and environmental concerns are addressed, Atmacinta has helped to:

  • Review and comment on applications, Environmental Assessments, plans and policies

  • Liaise with the community, biologists, environmental scientists and legal advisors to consolidate and draft comments

  • Liaise with federal and provincial government departments

  • Access and manage participant funding

Results
  • Council is apprised of all the details of the projects in a summarized format

  • Comments are drafted and submitted to Government in a timely manner.
