What impact will the Regional Strategic Environmental Assessment (RSEA) Interim Measures have on development in the area?

The Regional Strategic Environmental Assessment Interim Measures Agreement (Agreement), outlined in Industry Bulletin 2018-15, supports government’s Environmental Stewardship Initiative by creating a new way of collaboration between the Province and Blueberry River First Nations (BRFN) regarding resource development. Under the Agreement, certain areas within BRFN’s territory will be managed differently to address concerns with respect to activities associated with oil and gas development. The Agreement is expected to be in place until final recommendations are made under the Regional Strategic Environmental Assessment process.
