OTTAWA , June 16, 2017 /CNW/ - The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the Agency) must decide whether a federal environmental assessment is required for the proposed Lac Windfall Mine Project, located on the Eeyou Istchee-James Bay Territory, 75 km southeast of the Cree village of Waswanipi and 115 km east of Lebel-sur-Quévillon, Quebec.
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 the summary of the project description. All comments received will be considered public. For more information on the Agency's privacy policies, consult the Privacy Notice on its web site.
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 environmental assessment of the project.
Written comments must be submitted by July 6, 2017 to:
