Can they really do that? Understanding the limits of governmental permitting and compliance powers

Events < 1 read

While every company strives to achieve constructive relations with regulators, sometimes this is not enough. In such cases, understanding the rules that apply to regulators and the limits of their powers can be essential to levelling the playing field.

This two hour webinar will address questions such as:

  • What are the different types of government actions and what are the limits of each?
    (E.g. legislation, regulations, statutory decision-making and compliance actions)
  • What are the “principles of procedural fairness” and do they apply even when government is pursuing important public policy goals and Indigenous reconciliation?
  • What can we do if government is treating us badly, without burning bridges?

This course is intended for:

  • C Suite executives in the natural resource, financial services or other regulated sectors
  • Permitting staff and consultants
  • Government relations staff and consultants
  • Corporate staff and consultants engaged in Indigenous engagement and the duty to consult

COST: $250. Registration for McMillan clients is complimentary. Please RSVP by end of day November 7th.

This program qualifies for up to 2 hours Substantive CPD (ON), 2 hours of CPD (BC), and 2 hours of CLE (QC).
