The Environmental Appeals Board is an independent board that gives Albertans an opportunity to appeal certain decisions made by Alberta Environment and Protected Areas under the Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act, the Water Act, the Emissions Management and Climate Resilience 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. Mediations promote open and collaborative discussions between the participants and encourages individuals to come up with their own solutions.

Environmental Appeals Board decisions are now located on the Decisia website
