This Month In Focus

Many people take for granted the simple act of drinking potable water from the tap every day. We are happy to be celebrating with our indigenous communities on their recent class action victory against the Federal Government over sustained clean water access.

August’s Regulatory Bulletin, compiled by our Indigenous Engagement Lead, Rachel Wallis, details this landmark ruling; Yahey vs British Columbia; and the latest legislative news regarding Canada’s energy and natural resources.
