In accordance with the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act (CEEA), Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is required to address the impacts of development projects during the planning stage, to understand the environmental setting of the project, predict the potential impacts (adverse or even positive) and a plan for mitigating the adverse impacts if there were any, and for monitoring to ensure the impacts are managed in compliance with sustainability and applicable regulations.

Projects of various size and scale proposed by public or private proponents may undergo an EIA screening process to determine if an EIA should be conducted. In this course, EIA legislation, process and stages will be overviewed and examples of key projects in Canada in mining and oil and gas sector will be introduced and discussed.
