The Cold Lake oil sands area, Township 56 to 69, Range 1 to 11, west of the 4th Meridian, falls within the Lower Athabasca Regional Plan (LARP). As part of Alberta's Land-use Framework, LARP was developed in 2012 to set the stage for robust growth, vibrant communities and a healthy environment within the region. One of its implementation objectives is to balance the economic development of oil sands and impacts on ecosystem and environment. This is to be achieved through enhanced science-based monitoring for improved characterization of the environment and collection of the information necessary to understand cumulative effects.
The Index of Biotic Integrity (IBI) is a valuable multi-metric approach to assess the integrity of fish assemblages in aquatic ecosystems. The purpose of the estuarine IBI monitoring program at Kouchibouguac National Park is to use this index in order to evaluate the condition of selected rivers and estuaries within coastal ecosystems. The methods for this biennial measure involve beach seining in shallow nearshore waters at 20 stations, once a month from May to October. This monthly sampling is required so as to maximize detection of the various species in fish communities and account for variable phenology due to their reproductive cycles.
A placer claim is a parcel of land located or granted for placer mining.

A placer claim is a rectangular plot of ground. All angles of a claim must be right angles, except in the cases where a boundary line of a previously located claim is adopted as common to both locations.
