PFAS and Other Emerging Contaminants – The Science and Beyond

The Real Property Institute of Canada (RPIC) is well known for its Federal Contaminated Sites (FCS) Workshops, leading professional development events for federal and industry environmental professionals involved in the management and remediation of federal contaminated sites. These Workshops offer a unique opportunity for the public, private, and academic sectors to meet and exchange new ideas and information with colleagues and industry representatives from across the country and abroad. Since 2006, the RPIC FCS Workshops have been held in Ottawa, Vancouver, Montreal, Toronto, Kingston, Halifax, Edmonton and Richmond.

The next regional edition of RPIC’s Federal Contaminated Sites Workshop is scheduled for June 4-5, 2019 and is heading back to Halifax. This Workshop will provide a forum for the contaminated sites community to learn about technical, scientific and organizational innovations, and best practices for the management of sites contaminated with per and polyfluoroalkylated substances (PFAS) and other emerging contaminants. Under the theme PFAS and Other Emerging Contaminants – The Science and Beyond, the proposed presentation streams include:

  • Environmental Site Assessment
  • Human Health and Ecological Risk Assessment
  • Remediation and Risk Management
  • Regulatory Framework/Guidelines
  • Project Management and Challenges Specific to Emerging Contaminants

The full technical program is available. Registration is now open and you will want to confirm early so as not to miss this unique technical training opportunity. Download the Federal Employee Training Justification Kit. 

We look forward to reconnecting with you in Halifax!
