A Government of Canada news release reminded me to remind you to watch for new sources of information.

The Governments of Canada and of Alberta Launch New Online Portal for Accessing Oil Sands Environmental Monitoring Data and Information

OTTAWA, Ont. – April 22, 2013 – Canada’s Environment Minister, the Honourable Peter Kent, and Alberta’s Environment and Sustainable Resource Development Minister, the Honourable Diana McQueen, today announced that access to federal and provincial environmental monitoring data on air, water, land and biodiversity in the oil sands is now available through an online data portal (www.JointOilSandsMonitoring.ca). The new portal represents the next stage of progress for the Joint Canada–Alberta Implementation Plan for Oil Sands Monitoring announced in February 2012.

This new portal is a tool for legal research, well kind of new in that it is a collected jumping off point if you are looking for environmental monitoring information.   The new part is the aggregated collection – quite useful if you are searching for this type of information to have a unified starting place. Check it out.

Today’s Tip: Be on the look out for new research sources and tools.
