Contaminated Sites Liability & Litigation Risk

April 22, 2021 8:30 am — 5:30 pm


This conference is co-sponsored by the Canadian Institute and the Environmental Law Institute.

Cross Country Perspectives Addressing Environmental Contamination Liability Risks

The Polluter Pays for a contaminated site is not always the doctrine being upheld in the courts. Recent caselaw has seen the current landowners, from municipalities to private enterprises, being held responsible for historic property damages, damages to neighbouring properties and remediation. A contaminated land claim can arise at any time, either during a property transaction, an environmental assessment, or at the time of the contamination. What is your obligation to report and what actions can make you liable?

The Canadian Institute’s advanced conference on Contaminated Sites Liability & Litigation Risk takes a deep dive into the most critical challenges affecting land developers, real estate and legal professionals, and environmental management officials. Join this one-day national event April 22, 2021 on our dynamic virtual platform, to delve into the law, regulation and enforcement.
