The Ontario climate plan: Should provinces follow or flee?

Canadian governments have produced a lot of climate-change action plans over the past two decades. Most have been filled with fluffy language crafted to ruffle no feathers, and have promised a light touch to secure buy-in from all parties. Many have also never left the drawing board, playing a role only by locking up carbon in their infrequently consulted pages.

2016 Annual Workshop Update

We have a couple updates on our upcoming Annual Workshop, to be held at the Waring House in Prince Edward Country, April 20-22.

First, we have arranged a short field trip of the Glenn Miller run-of-river plant on the Trent-Severn Waterway that will take place following the conclusion of the Workshop on Friday, between 2 and 3pm.  This tour is free of cost, and all workshop participants are welcome to attend. 

Second, we have recently made some minor modifications to the program.  To download the revised program, please visit the workshop page here

If you have any questions about the Agenda or the Workshop in general, please contact the ONSEP Administrator, James Gaede.  

2016 Annual Workshop registration now available!

After reviewing the many great abstracts submitted this year, the ONSEP review team has selected 15 papers for presentation at the upcoming Annual Workshop.  We would like to thank everyone who submitted an abstract for their interest in the workshop, and encourage those who were not accepted to try again in the future.  

The Annual Workshop will be held at the Waring House in Prince Edward County, April 20-22.  The registration form is now available at the link below.  Please note that there are student and non-student rates, both of which are for two nights.  We strongly encourage anybody interested in registering for the Workshop to attend all three days.  If you are interested in one of the limited availability shared rooms, or if you are interested in only one night accomodation, please contact the ONSEP Coordinator, James Gaede.  All registration proceeds go to supporting the Workshop.
