Environmental Law & Regulation

Environmental protection is dependent on good legislation and effective compliance at federal, provincial, and municipal levels.

The Saskatchewan government has been developing a process to move from a system of regulations for implementing environmental law to an environmental code. SES was represented on the Code Development Committee and is currently represented on the Code Advisory Committee.

In 2016 the federal government initiated a review of the federal environmental assessment review process. Read SES’s submission to the review panel here.

The Saskatchewan Environmental Society continues to regularly monitor and review changes in these systems.
