Regulatory and Industry Relations
The Regulatory and Industry Relations Team reviews information from companies to identify and bring forward the impacts on ACFN and ways to reduce or avoid these impacts. This information includes proposed project applications as well as updates about projects that are already operating. The Regulatory Team meets with industry regularly and ensures that ACFN Elders and Members are included in these meetings. We also support ACFN Elders and Members by requesting and arranging tours and meetings with the companies, so that ACFN Elders and Members can understand the projects in their territory, and can raise their questions directly to the industry representatives. The Team’s objective is to continually push for stronger mitigation of impacts on the lands, the water, the species that rely on these, and ultimately, on ACFN members who have rights to use all of these.
