OTTAWA, O.N. – The Financial Post is reporting that a federal panel will review how Canada handles environmental assessments for major resource projects.

On Monday, Federal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna announced that she had appointed a four-member panel to write a report, which is due by the end of January. The report will highlight how to update the country’s environmental review processes. In addition, a second soon-to-be-named panel will provide recommendations on modernizing the National Energy Board, whichis the overseer of large energy projects nationwide

.

In a press release on Monday, McKenna said that the government’s “belief that a clean environment and a strong economy go hand-in-hand is central to the health and well-being of Canadians. This is especially important as we work to get resources to market and develop major projects responsibly in the 21st century.”

The panel will be chaired by Montreal-based strategist and consultant Johanne Gélinas with Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, and will also include former Teck Resources executive Doug Horswill, aboriginal lawyer Renée Pelletier and Toronto-based environmental lawyer Rod Northey.
