OTTAWA, July 11, 2019 /CNW/ - The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the Agency) must decide whether a federal environmental assessment is required for the proposed Kitimat LNG Expansion Project, located at Bish Cove, near Kitimat, British Columbia.
To help inform this decision, the Agency is seeking comments from the public and Indigenous groups on the project and its potential effects on the environment, as described in KM LNG Operating General Partnership's summary of the project description.
In addition, the Government of British Columbia has requested that the conduct of the federal environmental assessment process be substituted to the province. This means the provincial government would conduct the environmental assessment of the project on behalf of the Agency, and would gather the information needed for the Minister of Environment and Climate Change to make an environmental assessment decision under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012.
The Agency is also seeking comments from the public and Indigenous groups on this request.
Public Comments Invited
All comments received will be considered public. Written comments in either official language must be submitted by July 31, 2019 to:
