Environmental Impact Assessment Reports
Environmental Impact Assessment reports for large industrial disturbances such as oil sands mines and processing plants have been required under the Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act (and predecessor legislation) since 1973. Reports submitted since 2001 in digital format are available at <a href="https://external.sp.environment.gov.ab.ca/DocArc/EIA/Pages/default.aspx.">https://external.sp.environment.gov.ab.ca/DocArc/EIA/Pages/default.aspx</a>. This Collection contains earlier oil sands mine and plant site Environmental Impact Assessment reports. OSRIN appreciates the efforts of Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development and Alberta Government Library staff in providing the materials to be digitized.
