OTTAWA, Dec. 20 /CNW/ - The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the Agency) has awarded $20,000 to the Prince Albert Grand Council to support its participation in the federal environmental assessment of the proposed Highway 905 - All Weather Roadway - Stony Rapids to Lake Athabasca near Fond-du-Lac Project in Saskatchewan.
This funding is awarded through the Participant Funding Program administered by the Agency and is being provided to assist the recipient's participation in upcoming steps in the comprehensive study process, including the review of the comprehensive study report.
A funding review committee, independent of the environmental assessment process, was established to examine the request for funding for this project. The committee's report, along with further information on the project, is available on the Agency's Web site at www.ceaa-acee.gc.ca, in the Canadian Environmental Assessment Registry, under reference number 10-03-57501.
The Saskatchewan Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure is proposing to construct an all-weather road from Stony Rapids to the south shore of Lake Athabasca near Fond-du-Lac. The purpose of the project is to enable more efficient transportation of goods and services to Fond-du-Lac.
The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency administers the federal environmental assessment process, which identifies the environmental effects of proposed projects and measures to address those effects, in support of sustainable development.
