Joint Implementation Plan for Oil Sands Monitoring: Results Report: 2013–2014

cover of publication

The Joint Canada/Alberta Implementation Plan outlines how the governments of Alberta and Canada will work together as partners to implement a world-class monitoring program for the oil sands that integrates air, water, land and biodiversity. Monitoring commitments made by the governments in the Implementation Plan are intended to improve characterization of the state of the environment as well as understanding the cumulative effects of activities in the oil sands area.

The Implementation Plan is funded by industry to a maximum of $50 million annually. The approach to implementation is both phased (2012-2015) and adaptive to ensure governments are responsive to the priorities that emerge through new information and knowledge, and input from key stakeholders.

The report presents results of monitoring work done in year two (April 1, 2013, to March 31, 2014) of the Implementation Plan under the joint leadership of Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development on behalf of the Government of Alberta and Environment Canada on behalf of the Government of Canada.
