12pm to 1pm ET

Presented in French 

The Yukon is a vast and sparsely populated northern territory of Canada, synonymous with wilderness, mountains and glaciers. The development and operation of hydroelectric and tailing dams present very different challenges than the rest of Canada. It is required to adapt to a harsh sub-arctic climate, a very young and changing geology, and significant impacts from climate change. This presentation will provide an overview of the Yukon reality in the field of dams.

Are you interested in knowing more and discuss about that topic with other professionals from your industry?

About le RDV Franco

Le Rendez-Vous du Comité Francophone de l'ACB is a periodic event (virtual and/or face-to-face) during which members of the committee receive a variety of presenters and guests to address and discuss various topics related to dams. 

More informal and interactive than traditional webinars, this activity sometimes takes the form of a presentation, sometimes a discussion, and sometimes both.
