The Expert Panel tasked with reviewing federal environmental assessment processes in Canada has announced a series of in-person engagement activities.

The Expert Panel will be travelling the country from September 19 to December 15, 2016, to hear the views of Indigenous Peoples, stakeholders and all Canadians on the federal environmental assessment process.
