The Environmental Appeals Board is an independent board that gives Albertans an opportunity to appeal certain decisions made by Alberta Environment and Parks under the Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act, the Water Act, the Climate Change and Emissions Management Act, and Schedule 5 of the Government Organization Act. These decisions may include approvals, water licences, preliminary certificates, remediation certificates, administrative penalties, enforcement orders, and environmental protection orders. The Board places a high value on its mediation program and encourages participants to use mediation as the primary way to resolve appeals. Board mediations promote open and collaborative discussions between the participants and encourages individuals to come up with their own solutions.
