Roster of Technical Experts

Environment and Climate Change Canada may take steps to confirm or validate the information in this form. Individuals will be notified once the review of their candidate profile is complete.

Updates to qualifications, changes to contact information, or requests for removal from the Roster of Technical Experts can be made at any time by emailing ec.creditscompensatoires-offsets.ec@canada.ca

Technical Expert Teams

Federal offset protocols are critical components of the proposed Federal GHG Offset System as they set out a consistent approach for quantifying GHG emissions reductions or removals for specific project types, outline eligible project activities and establish clear rules for establishing baseline and project scenarios.

The development of federal offset protocols will require input from external technical experts with offset project experience and sector-specific expertise. As appropriate, Environment and Climate Change Canada will establish Technical Expert Teams to provide technical input to protocols under development.

Additional information of note

  1. Inclusion on the Roster of Technical Experts does not guarantee participation on a Technical Expert Team. Team members will be selected by Environment and Climate Change Canada based on the specific technical needs for each offset protocol under development, in addition to taking other factors into consideration such as regional representation and the need to ensure timely development of protocols.
  2. If selected, participation on a Technical Expert Team is strictly voluntary, and no remuneration will be provided to team members. No travel is expected as all meetings will be conducted by phone or video conference.
  3. The time commitment required will vary depending on the development approach for each protocol (i.e. whether to adapt existing protocols or components of protocols or develop “from scratch”). An estimate of the required time commitment will be communicated to team members selected for a Technical Expert Team. Team members may be removed from the Technical Expert Team if they are not able to provide technical advice and input in a timely manner due to time constraints.
  4. Prior to providing technical advice and input to the protocol development process, team members will need to agree to the Terms of Reference established for the protocol under development, sign a non-disclosure agreement and disclose any financial interests related to project activities that may be included in the protocol to be developed. Team members must also provide confirmation that their employer approves of their participation on a Technical Expert Team. In addition, they must agree they will not use any information gathered as a member of the Technical Expert Team for their personal financial gain.
  5. Input received by Environment and Climate Change Canada from the Technical Expert Team will be limited to scientific or technical advice as it relates to quantification methodology, offset project implementation and verification requirements.
  6. Environment and Climate Change Canada retains all decision making authority regarding the development of federal offset protocols
  7. Protocol development documentation, such as protocol scoping documents and draft protocols, will include the names of the Technical Expert Team members as contributors.
