As part of an economic development and land use planning initiative, Mistawasis First Nation engaged Urban Systems Ltd. to assist with preparing an environmental management plan (the plan). The overall purpose of this project is to provide a comprehensive management framework to help ensure the protection and preservation of the environment, safety and well-being of the community, and compliance with regulatory requirements.
The environmental framework embodies an adaptive management approach, whereby management policies and practices are updated and adjusted in response to the evaluation of past environmental performance and evolving priorities. The plan provides an environmental policy and describes the roles and responsibilities of key staff involved in the management of economic and land development activities.
A key outcome of the plan is the establishment of environmental objectives and targets, and the development of monitoring programs to evaluate performance and verify compliance with environmental legislation and regulations.
