Register Now! - Snakes and Turtles and Bats, Oh My! Species at Risk and Development

Don't miss out and register now for our complimentary Willms & Shier Environmental Lawyers Webinar Series!

Our eighth webinar of the year is titled: Snakes and Turtles and Bats, Oh My! Species at Risk and Development. The webinar will take place on Wednesday, October 19, 2022 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm via Zoom.

Both federal and provincial governments have species at risk legislation, intended to protect listed plants, animals, and their habitat. Such legislation imposes obligations on industry and developers when listed species are encountered at a project site.

Join Charles Birchall, Jacquelyn Stevens, Matthew Gardner, and Joanna Vince to learn more about these obligations and how to navigate the federal Species at Risk Act and Ontario's Endangered Species Act, 2007.

This webinar will focus on key issues including:

  • Requirements for industry, contractors, developers and project
    proponents under federal and provincial legislation
  • Permitting obligations
  • Prosecution and fines, and
  • Best practices to avoid liability.
