Water quality and quantity in western Canada is being impacted by economic and industrial growth and pollution. The regulatory framework is constantly evolving in an effort to protect the increasingly limited water resources. Also, disputes over water are growing in number. It is crucial that governments, lawyers and companies are equipped with the tools to properly identify and resolve disputes. Non-compliance with water regulations or becoming entangled in disputes can lead to project delays, economic loss and/or liability.

At The Canadian Institute’s conference on Managing Water Resources & Disputes you will learn how to navigate the complexities of water regulation, as well as learn key strategies for preventing disputes before they arise or resolving disputes before they impact your bottom line. An outstanding speaker faculty at this unique conference will delve into core issues, including:

Understanding the water regulatory framework
Analyzing the impact of water on land use issues
Overcoming challenges in inter-jurisdictional water disputes
Examining the impact of the oil and gas industry on water quality and quantity
