Federal Environment Minister’s Letter on Assessment of Alberta Caribou Habitat Protection
February 27, 2018
The Minister of Environment and Climate Change Canada states that:
- she is assessing whether critical habitat of boreal caribou is effectively protected by the laws of Alberta;
- the information provided by Ecojustice, Cold Lake First Nations, Alberta Wilderness Association and David Suzuki Foundation in their November 2017 letter and supporting document will be considered in her assessment;
- should she determine that any portion of critical habitat is unprotected, she will publish a report in April 2018 on steps being taken to protect that critical habitat, and she will recommend that the federal Cabinet (Governor in Council) make an order.
