Training on Impact Assessment

The Impact Assessment Agency of Canada (the Agency) provides training to inform the public about impact assessment in Canada, and to assist the federal government and others in meeting their obligations under the Impact Assessment Act (IAA).

Working in collaboration with experts, practitioners and Indigenous peoples, the Agency develops and delivers a variety of training opportunities adapted to various audiences to ensure the needs of diverse learners are met.

All training opportunities are offered free of charge.

While the Agency’s offices are still closed to the public due to COVID-19, our team continues to work remotely to serve Canadians. We are working to create online training for advanced courses and a schedule will be released shortly.

In-class advanced training sessions continue to be postponed until further notice.
