The CSC National Conference is organized by the Canadian Society for Chemistry as its flagship event. As one of the largest professional events in Canada, it usually hosts around 3,000 participants. The Energy and the Environment Symposium and the Analytical Environmental Chemistry Symposium invite the submissions on environmental chemistry and engineering research, especially including oil spills and pollutants removal. Our PEOPLE members are playing important roles in this major event, for example:
• Dr. Feiyue Wang (firstname.lastname@example.org), University of Manitoba, co-organizer of Analytical Environmental Chemistry Symposium (executive committee member of CSC Environmental Chemistry Division)

PEOPLE Network workshop
Many persistent and emerging pollutants, such as petroleum hydrocarbons, pesticides, disinfection by products, pharmaceutical and cosmetic products, chemical surfactants, organic nanoparticles, microplastics, are toxic, bio-accumulative, non-regulated and currently not included in regulatory guidelines. Understanding their fate, behavior, environmental and health impacts in cold and coastal environments and developing pollution prevention, control and remediation technologies are essential for evidence-based policy/decision making and sustainable development. This workshop will be the first event of the PEOPLE Network events in order to help address the knowledge and technical gaps, and bring direct benefits to academia, government and industry, as well as communities and especially indigenous people in terms of R&D, policy making, technology transfer, education and training, and public engagement.
