This year, the changes are very significant for industry. The soon to be released Climate Change and Emissions Management Act will change the face of air emissions requirements in the province, while the federal government continues its consultations in preparation for full implementation of the Kyoto Protocol. Water regulation also continues to be tightened up as concerns grow over the quality and quantity of water in the province and the provincial Water Strategy struggles to deal with the crisis. How will access to water for competing uses play out over the short and long term? How will water disposal be regulated? Then there are the changes that the past year has brought to the law and regulation of contaminated sites, transportation of dangerous goods, and oil and gas flaring and venting.

And as always, there are lessons to be learned from the most recent environmental investigations and prosecutions, as well as from various new practical issues such as the increasing incidences of aboriginal road blockades and protest activities.

Now in its highly successful ninth year, this Canadian Institute conference is your best source for the latest news, updates and analyses on all of these critical issues and more. Get comprehensive, practical information from leading experts and key regulators on such topics as:
* The practical consequences of key regulatory changes such as the new air quality legislation, EUB's Guide 60, Alberta Environment's new Codes of Practice, and TDG's recent amendments on the transportation of dangerous goods
* The implications for industry of the key contaminated sites appeals in Lynnview Ridge and McColl Frontenac
* How aboriginal road blockades are impacting environmental management initiatives and what lessons you can learn from the experiences in B.C.
* The most common environmental infractions that landed people in hot water this past year, what the new trends in penalties and creative sentencing are, and how to avoid becoming part of next year's statistics

Delegates will also benefit from a comprehensive set of written materials prepared specifically for this conference, which will provide a valuable resource both during the conference and long after it is over.
