Title: Environmental Assessment of Nuclear Power Plants in Alberta
Authors: Kalkbrenner, Astrid

Abstract: This paper focuses on the nuclear licensing process which is the environmental impact assessment. In the Alberta context, the jurisdictional power over environmental impact assessments and provincial legislation are analyzed to enhance the understanding of potential conflicts that arise if plans to construct a nuclear power plant in Alberta become real. Although, this approach seems to be of a theoretical nature at present, during nuclear conferences questions centering on the division of power and its consequences were raised by the oil sands industry. Consequently, there is a demand for clarification which this paper attempts to address.
