A new era of environmental governance in Canada: From Promise to Implementation
Mark Winfield

The research explores substantive and political rationales for environmental assessment and public participation mechanisms in decision-making. It also presents recommendations for reform with respect to the federal environmental assessment process, and broader issues related to governance for sustainability including public participation in decision-making, access to information, and the role of the Federal Sustainable Development Act.
