Welcome to the Expert Panel’s website
In August 2016, the Minister of Environment and Climate Change established an Expert Panel to review federal environmental assessment processes.
The Expert Panel travelled across Canada to gain a better understanding of the issues that are important to Canadians. To all who participated in the review, thank you for helping shape the future of federal environmental assessment processes.
The Expert Panel's Report – Building Common Ground: A New Vision for Impact Assessment in Canada – has been submitted to the Minister of Environment and Climate Change and is available on the Government of Canada’s website for the review of environmental and regulatory processes.
Here on the Panel’s website, you are invited to learn about the Expert Panel, the Expert Panel’s review, and what the Panel heard across Canada.
