OTTAWA, May 17, 2016 /CNW/ - The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the Agency) must decide whether a federal environmental assessment is required for the proposed Kitimat Clean Refinery Project, an oil refinery project located approximately 13 kilometres north of Kitimat, British Columbia.
To help inform this decision, the Agency is seeking comments from the public on the project and its potential effects on the environment. All comments received will be considered public.
As a next step, the Agency will post a decision on its website stating whether an environmental assessment is required. If one is required, the public will have three more opportunities to comment on the project.
Written comments must be submitted by June 7, 2016 to:
