Transforming Alberta’s Environmental Regulatory System – Public Lands Act

Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP) is hosting a webinar about the regulatory transformation that is underway at the ministry to improve its regulatory assurance system and meet red tape reduction commitments.

The webinar will occur on Oct. 28, 2021, from 10 a.m. to noon.

Participants will learn about upcoming elements of the Digital Regulatory Assurance System (DRAS) that pertain to Public Lands Act commercial and industrial activities. They will also receive information on the ministry’s new Land Use Reservation Program (LURP).

Senior members of AEP will share information and collect comments from participants to help inform their work on the regulatory assurance system. They will present the ministry’s vision of a balanced and result-based approach to environmental stewardship and how DRAS will benefit municipalities.

Registration will be via Eventbrite.

Red tape reduction continues to be one of AUMA’s advocacy priorities. In 2019, we provided a Red Tape Reduction submission to the provincial government, which resulted in the streamlining of recycling programs, as per our recommendations. In early 2021, we hosted a webinar with AEP to share the ministry’s work on DRAS and regulatory transformation.
