Laurentian Chapter Update

Ryan Prosser, Laurentian Chapter President

The SETAC North America Laurentian Regional Chapter is holding it’s annual general meeting (AGM) on 13 June at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada. The theme of the meeting is "Emerging Topics in Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry: Separating Fact From Fiction." The meeting includes a short course and three exemplary plenary speakers.

Cynthia Scott-Dupree of the University of Guelph will present "Field Studies Examining Exposure and Effects of Neonicotinoid Insecticides on Bee Colony Health." Ulysses Klee of Stantec will present "Fate and Effects of Chemicals Used in Shale Gas Extraction." Finally, Joanee Parrott of Environment Canada will present "Larval Fish Toxicity of Sediments, Waters, Groundwaters and Snow Melt Waters from Oil Sands Areas."

On 12 June, in conjunction with the AGM, Barry Zajdlik of Zajdlik & Associates Inc. will hold a full-day short course titled "Decision Making Over Project Life – From Exploration to Site Closure." Zajdlik has over 20 years of consulting experience, providing expertise in the application of statistics to environmental issues across a number of industries.

The AGM is a great opportunity to present your latest work, catch up with old friends, and make some new ones. The conversations had over coffee breaks and afterhour socials are guaranteed to be interesting. Visit the Laurentian Regional Chapter website for more information on the upcoming AGM and short course.
