Currently, the Committee is working on issues regarding Saskatchewan’s Environmental Management Code, the federal actions on air emissions regulation, developments regarding the Federal Fisheries Act, issues surrounding the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, the provincial water legislation renewal process and other inter-jurisdictional concerns (i.e. environmental assessment).
