COVID-19 response: Consultation timeline paused

All Consultation Timelines and Consultation Adequacy Decisions associated with ‘The Government of Alberta’s Guidelines on Consultation with First Nations on Land and Natural Resource Management’ and ‘The Government of Alberta’s Guidelines on Consultation with Metis Settlements on Land and Natural Resource Management’ are paused for the First Nations and Metis Settlements listed below.

We will reassess in 2 weeks and post updates accordingly.

For proposed projects where all procedural aspects of consultation were completed prior to initiation of a consultation pause, proponents may proceed with submitting records to the ACO for an adequacy review. Note that any additional consultation required as directed in an ‘Adequacy Review Information Request’ may be subject to a consultation pause, as per the listing on this page.
