The Mackenzie Valley Environmental Impact Review Board is an institution of public government created by Part 5 of the Mackenzie Valley Resources Management Act (MVRMA), a federal statute. The MVRMA establishes the Review Board as the main instrument for environmental assessment (EA) and environmental impact review (EIR) of proposed developments in the Mackenzie Valley, including the assessment of social, cultural and economic impacts. The assessment and review framework established under the Act, particularly section 115, requires that the Review Board consider protection of the social, cultural and economic well-being of residents and communities in the Mackenzie Valley. The MVRMA gives the Review Board the authority to set guidelines for the social and economic impact assessment (SEIA) of proposed developments. This discussion paper explores the contribution SEIA can make to social and economic sustainability in the Mackenzie Valley. It was used for public consultation prior to the development of SEIA guidelines that now govern EA and EIR. More on http://www.reviewboard.ca/about/,
