Bow Corridor Regional Mobility Strategy
Parks Canada, the Towns of Canmore and Banff and the Municipal District of Bighorn commissioned a regional transportation study in May 2003 to develop a regional transportation strategy for the Bow Corridor. The study involved an extensive research effort that included stakeholder forums, interview, focus groups, public open houses, literature and document reviews, and an examination of relevant experience elsewhere. The project involved four steps -- Issues Scan, Situation Analysis, Best Practices and the Strategy itself.
Carrying Capacity and Thresholds:
Theory and Practice in Environmental Management
The paper introduces a pragmatic, action-oriented approach to integrating principles of thresholds into cumulative effects assessment and management in Canada's North. It discusses the potential use of this approach in the integrated resource management system set up under the Mackenzie Valley Resource Management Act and Inuvialuit Final Agreement.
Cumulative Effects Assessment: Current Practices and Future Options
Commissioned by Alberta Environmental Protection, this report examines current (1997) cumulative effects assessment practices and identifies ways to improve them.
Cumulative Effects and the Energy Resources Conservation Board's Review Process
The objectives, principles and tools for conducting a cumulative effects assessment (CEA) are examined.
Principles of Communicating Risks
Recognizing an escalation in conflict between communities, regulators, corporations and special interest groups, the Macleod Institute developed Principles of Communicating Risks to improve corporate performance while managing environmental, health and safety risks.
Economic Costs Associated with Regulatory Delay
The Macleod Institute's study of federal and provincial environmental jurisdictions for Alberta Environmental Protection contributed to the Canadian Council of the Ministers of the Environment's harmonization initiative.
