Navigate the Northern Project Approval Process in a Time and Cost Effective Manner

The North of 60° regulatory regime is notorious for being complex and convoluted. There are critical issues of jurisdiction and devolution of power between federal, territorial, local and aboriginal bodies, which is further complicated by cross-jurisdictional issues. And that’s just the beginning.

The Canadian Institute’s Obtaining and Securing Project Approvals North of 60° conference presents a multi-faceted approach drawing on the experience of executive-level proponents, senior-level federal, territorial and local governments, aboriginal chiefs, and key decision-makers from key governing boards who are integral to the project approval process.

This conference has been designed to help you fully explore and examine critical issues that are unique to the North such as land-use planning, land ownership, the McCrank Report, Aboriginal consultation, environmental assessments, water licensing and compensation, and security for reclamation. Leave this event with a practical and in depth understanding of the commonalities between, and distinctiveness of, the Yukon, NWT and Nunavut and their resident aboriginal communities.
