In February 2021, we completed our assessment of implementation from our April 2010 audit, which was repeated in October 2015, on Alberta Environment and Parks’ Wetland Replacement. We found that the recommendation has not been implemented.
We are repeating our recommendation with updated wording:
We recommend that the Department of Environment and Parks have clear, enforceable agreements and effective monitoring to ensure wetland replacement parties meet their responsibilities.
We expect the department to implement the recommendation for the 2013 policy and for the remaining wetland replacement under the 1993 policy.
- REPEATED RECOMMENDATION: Improve controls over wetland replacement
