Welcome to the 22nd Annual meeting of the Canadian Resource and Environmental Economists (CREE) Study Group. Here you find information on participating in the CREE conference, which will take place on Friday through Sunday, September 28-30, 2012 at the downtown Vancouver location of the University of British Columbia at Robson Square.

This year's keynote speaker is Professor Trudy Ann Cameron (University of Oregon) who will talk about Demand for Health Risk Reduction. The keynote speech starts at 14:45 on Saturday September 29.

Registration commenced June 11, 2012. All participants must register. Presenters are required to register by August 28, 2012 if they wish to remain on the program.

The objective of CREE is to provide a forum for researchers and policy analysts in resource and environmental economics to share ideas, questions and research findings. This is achieved primarily by way of an annual conference, usually held on a weekend in early October each year. CREE also organizes a small number of sessions at the annual Canadian Economics Association meetings, usually held in June. The annual CREE conference is deliberately kept small, usually with about 20 papers selected for presentation and discussion, and about 60 delegates in attendance. This setting fosters a high level interaction among participants and results in valuable feedback for presenters. It also provides a setting for emerging scholars to meet and interact with academics and policy analysts from across the country and, indeed, from around the world.

Organizing Committee: Carol McAusland, Sumeet Gulati, Brian Copeland, and Werner Antweiler. Program Committee: Joel Bruneau, Jon Janmaat, Louis Hotte, Andrew Leach, and the members of the organizing committee.
