Updated Alberta Environment and Parks Master Schedule of Standards and Conditions
Release Date: January 21, 2021
On January 8, 2021, Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP) updated the Master Schedule of Standards and Conditions (MSSC). The MSSC covers all land disposition applications under the Public Lands Act, including for energy resource activities.
The updates clarified and streamlined the application process for public lands only by reducing redundancies and updating the language to reflect today’s energy sector. These updates did not lessen public safety or environmental and wildlife protections.
One area of confusion in the previous version of the MSSC was around wildlife sweeps. The updated MSSC requires a new wildlife sweep protocol be followed.
We have already made the necessary changes to land disposition applications in OneStop.
For questions about how the updated MSSC affects AER applications, please contact our Customer Contact Centre by phone at 403-297-8311 (1-855-297-8311) or by email at @email.
