September marked the Coal Policy Committee’s most significant milestone to date as we completed the final phase of the formal engagement process. We are now compiling and analyzing all the advice and perspectives received from Albertans.
The volume of responses from Albertans has been exceptional, and somewhat overwhelming. We want to ensure we are able to devote the necessary attention to the input received. That’s why the committee requested an extension for the engagement report, originally due October 15. The Minister of Energy granted the extension to match the deadline of our final report on November 15.
We appreciate the time and effort of everyone who took the time to meet with us or to share a submission. We look forward to presenting our recommendations to the Minister of Energy later this fall.
