On April 22, the Canadian federal government in conjunction with governments in Alberta launched a portal on environmental data in the oil sands region. The portal contains information on the process of monitoring air, biodiversity, land, and water as well as maps of the monitoring sites. Data on greenhouse gas emissions is not included. The portal is part of the 2012 Joint Canada-Alberta Implementation Plan for Oil Sands Monitoring, the government’s effort to have a transparent review of oil sands efforts.
