Support for MIACC Initiative.

Environment Canada held a stakeholder workshop on December 7, 2000, to explore views on prevention, preparedness and response for environmental emergencies. The result was a rapid consensus that the work done by the Major Industrial Accidents Council of Canada (MIACC) is still valid and provides a good base on which to build. Participants unanimously supported the three-level concept for site and community self-assessment. Plans are now taking shape to support and advance the Partnerships Toward Safer Communities initiative, via the lead of the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs and the Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering (CSChE). A strategy for greater public and stakeholder engagement is also being developed for a follow-up workshop around April 2001.
