May 16, 2017 at 8:51 AM

The Canadian Land Reclamation Association (CLRA), The Ontario Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (OSSGA) and the Ontario Mining Association (OMA) are pleased to announce the Ontario Land Reclamation and Rehabilitation Symposium. Taking place June 26-28 in Guelph, Ontario, the two-day event features a workshop symposium and a local rehabilitation tour.

Symposium Details

The symposium workshop will showcase one day of technical presentations, in addition to reclamation and student award presentations. As the birthplace of the CLRA in 1975, the University of Guelph is the perfect location for the 2017 symposium.

The symposium and workshop will be held at the University of Guelph. Dinner will be held at the Delta Guelph followed by a late night reception at the University of Guelph Arboretum.

The aggregate industry is one of the leading land use rehabilitators in the province. Together with community partners we enhance or create new natural areas, agricultural lands, wetlands, recreational spaces and more. Don’t miss this opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge on new and upcoming best practices in site reclamation and rehabilitation.


 

Discover

This year we present the opportunity for the mining, aggregate and brownfield sectors to come together to compare rehabilitation
techniques and innovations and help expand our knowledge and networking base. The symposium will showcase one day of technical presentations and posters, in addition to reclamation and student award presentations. As the birthplace of the CLRA in 1975, with excellent examples of rehabilitation close to campus, the University of Guelph is the ideal location for the 2017 symposium.

Aggregate companies, mining companies, consultants, students, environmental NGO’s, First Nations, Conservation authorities, government officials and public sector employees are all encouraged to attend and share their knowledge of the rehabilitation industry. Learn from industry experts and find out the latest research practices
