Tan'si (Tan-say, Cree) Oki (Oo-kii, Blackfoot) Ehlanat'e (eh-DLAH-nah-tay, Dene), you're on reserve! Unique considerations and requirements for remediating, reclaiming and surrendering surface agreements on First Nation Reserve lands managed by Indian Oil and Gas Canada.
The Calgary Environmental Network (CEN) invites you to a presentation on Tuesday, March 7, 2017 entitled “Tan'si (Tan-say, Cree) Oki (Oo-kii, Blackfoot) Ehlanat'e (eh-DLAH-nah-tay, Dene), you're on reserve! Unique considerations and requirements for remediating, reclaiming and surrendering surface agreements on First Nation Reserve lands managed by Indian Oil and Gas Canada” by Elaine Blais and Jen Morin, Indian Oil and Gas Canada (IOGC).
Find out what reclamation and remediation criteria Indian Oil and Gas Canada uses, what a Band Council Resolution is and when you need to secure one. We will provide an overview of the remediation, reclamation, and surrender processes on Reserve lands in Canada. We will also walk through IOGC's reclamation application form and the new Draft Remediation Action Plan Form and Guide. IOGC will be soliciting input on the Draft RAP Form and Guide over the next few months.
Elaine (McIvor) Blais, B.Sc.,P.Ag., graduated from the University of Winnipeg in 1992 with a Bachelor of Science degree. Elaine started her career working for an environmental management consulting firm in Winnipeg in 1992. After a year of poor wages but a wealth of experience, she began her career with Indigenous Affairs and Northern Development in 1993 managing environmental assessments, contaminated sites, and environmental protection and stewardship issues in northern Ontario, BC’s west coast and as far North as Victoria and Baffin Islands. Elaine spent 9 years in Yellowknife concentrating mainly on project managing environmental assessment reviews for small to major mining proposals and oil and gas projects in the Mackenzie Valley. She also spent considerable time project managing the comprehensive study for Canada’s second diamond mine, Diavik Diamonds Project. Elaine joined Indian Oil and Gas Canada (IOGC) in December 2005 and holds the position of Manager of Environment that included an assignment to draft environmental regulations for IOGC.
Jen Morin, B.Sc, has worked as an Environmental Analyst with Indian Oil and Gas Canada for close to 7 years. She cut her teeth on site assessment and monitoring at Komex International Ltd. as a student back in the late 1990s. After completing her undergraduate degree in Ecology at the University of Calgary, Jen spent 10 years in the Northwest Territories working on cleaning up contaminated sites, managing the Territories' transportation infrastructure and environmental programs, participating in environmental assessment and permitting processes, and most fun of all, working with NWT Indigenous peoples to identify and protect culturally and ecologically important areas. While at IOGC, she has coordinated the development of IOGC's environmental forms and guides. She dreams of taking over IOGC's Ottawa-managed website.
