The Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME) is now accepting proposals for Project 607-2018 – Cumulative Effects Monitoring Programs – Key Elements Review. Proposals will be accepted until January 3, 2018,12:00 noon CST.

Cumulative effects are changes to the environment that are caused by an action in combination with other past, present, and future human actions. Numerous definitions exist in the literature, yet it is an area of research and practice that is being developed for regulatory purposes.

The CCME contract states: The Contractor will conduct a jurisdictional review of cumulative effects monitoring programs and identify key elements of an effective cumulative effects monitoring program.

The Contractor will facilitate a face-to-face workshop to discuss and articulate an ideal cumulative effects monitoring system for the Canadian context and develop a workshop summary and analysis report.

The Contractor will develop a report that includes the results of the jurisdictional review and the results of the workshop, and provides recommendations on a specific medium (air, water, terrestrial) to use for a pilot test of the key elements.

Closing Date/Time: January 3, 2018, 12:00 noon CST
