2013 RPIC Federal Contaminated Sites Regional Workshop
Sustainable Approaches to Contaminated Sites Assessment and Project Planning
June 19 - 20, 2013 at the World Trade and Convention Centre Halifax
1800 Argyle Street, Halifax, Nova Scotia
The Real Property Institute of Canada (RPIC) is well known for its biennial RPIC Federal Contaminated Sites National Workshops (RPIC FCSNW), a leading professional development event for federal and industry environmental professionals involved in the management and remediation of federal contaminated sites. Since 2006, the RPIC FCSNW has been held in Ottawa, Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto.
The first RPIC Federal Contaminated Sites Regional Workshop (RPIC FCSRW) was hosted in Kingston in 2011 and offered participants in-depth training on sustainable remediation in Canada. The June 2013 RPIC FCSRW will be a follow-up and will offer a wide variety of opportunities to learn about technical, operational and organizational challenges relating to sustainable approaches to contaminated sites assessment and project planning.
Sustainability is becoming an integral part of decision-making processes in the field of contaminated sites management. The integration of sustainability within assessment and planning processes for contaminated sites is done to ensure that, in the long run, these projects contribute to the improvement of the overall environmental situation of each site.
This Regional Workshop will feature dynamic presentations on sustainable assessment and project planning, including a showcase of success stories, the sharing of best practices, the introduction of applicable technical innovations, plenary sessions, keynotes and a trade show that will foster networking with event partners, government representatives, academic researchers and private sector firms.
