The Environmental Assessment Process
This project has two phases: 1) the Terms of Reference and 2) the Environmental Assessment.
The “Terms of Reference” is a road map that outlines how the Environmental Assessment will be carried out. The Amended Terms of Reference was approved by the Minister of the Environment and Climate Change on November 9, 2017.
We are now in the Environmental Assessment phase. The Environmental Assessment is the study that assesses the potential environmental effects (positive or negative) of a proposal.
Conducting an EA promotes good environmental planning before decisions are made about moving forward with a proposal.
