MNAI worked with Ian Moore to develop a legal primer that provides practical, relevant information on environmental governance related to natural assets and management of nature’s services in Canada. The Natural Asset Management Legal Primer includes:

  • Changing nature of environmental governance
  • Interprovincial comparison for legal authority (BC, AB, ON, NB)
  • Comparative look at legal tools for protecting and managing natural assets
  • Areas of potential legal liability or exposure for municipalities
  • Case law, Indigenous law, and legal developments to watch

The Natural Asset Management Legal Primer document will be released in winter of 2023. Sign up for our newsletter to receive updates about this and other activities.

This initiative is offered through the Municipal Asset Management Program, which is delivered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities and funded by the Government of Canada.
