CEMF Open House

Since 2012, the Elk Valley CEMF Working Group, made up of Ktunaxa, industry, governments, and community, has assessed the current condition of four valued components - grizzly bear, riparian habitat/Westslope cutthroat trout, bighorn sheep, and old/mature forest. Selected future scenarios were then modelled to explore potential cumulative effects and specific strategies to avoid, reduce or manage cumulative impacts on these four VCs. Dr. Bram Noble, an expert from the University of Saskatchewan, will discuss the opportunities and challenges of implementing a cumulative effects-based strategy. Activities at the Open House will help community better understand the scope and usefulness of this exciting new decision making tool.
