PDAC Position Statement – Land Use Planning & Land Access

In spring 2010, the PDAC Lands and Regulations and Aboriginal Affairs committees participated in a workshop to develop a position statement on land access and land use planning. 

Finalized in January 2011, the statement offers the PDAC’s views on Guiding Principles and Practices that its members believe should guide the development of public policy and legislation regulating land use planning for Crown lands and governing access to those lands for mineral exploration and mine development purposes. The purpose is to ensure that decision-makers, advisory groups, and the general public are aware of the impact that land use planning has on mineral development and economic potential as well as those principles and practices that can be implemented to ensure that society’s environmental, social and economic goals are achieved.
