Sandspit small craft harbour mediation process: En106-27/1995E-PDF

a review and evaluation /

"A fourteen-month mediation process was used to resolve environmental and socio-economic issues surrounding a proposed small craft harbour for Sandspit, British Columbia. Mediation was conducted as part of an initial assessment under the Federal Environmental Assessment and Review Process (EARP) and represents the first full-scale use of mediation within the federal environmental assessment process. The Canadian Environmental Assessment Act (the Act), which replaced the EARP in January 1995, provides for mediation as an alternative or an adjunct to a public review by an environmental assessment panel. Following completion of the mediation process, participants were interviewed using a series of open-ended questions designed to evaluate the process. The results of these interviews are presented in this report. The application of experience gained during the Sandspit process to the development of a mediation process under the Act is discussed"--Abstract.
