Environmental Legislation in Canada and US Webinar

Recorded on November 8 | $65 | ALL CAREER STAGES | 90 MINS

Understand the differences in how environmental matters are regulated in Canada and the United States

In an effort to reduce costs, some organizations apply a one-size-fits-all approach to environmental compliance, assuming that if they meet the regulatory requirements in one place, they will meet them in another.

This is a dangerous assumption to make. While there are some similarities between environmental requirements in Canada and the United States, on the whole the two countries’ laws approach protection of the environment in very different ways. Organizations that don’t take these differences into account risk civil and criminal penalties, harm to human health and the environment, operational downtime, and loss of social license to operate.

Join Sara Lipson in this 90 minute webinar to understand differences in how certain environmental matters are regulated in Canada and the United States and how your organization can comply.
