Milton Logistics Hub Project - Federal Funding Allocated for the Environmental Assessment

OTTAWA, Nov. 3, 2015 /CNW/ - The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency has allocated $203,122.90 to four applicants to assist their participation in the environmental assessment by a review panel of the proposed Milton Logistics Hub Project in Ontario.




Halton Region Conservation Authority


Milton Says No – Community Organization


Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation


Nation Huronne-Wendat





This funding is allocated through the Participant Funding Program administered by the Agency. A funding review committee, independent of the review panel process, was established to assess the requests for funding.

The funding will assist recipients to review and comment on the Review Panel Terms of Reference and on the Environmental Impact Statement, and to prepare for and participate in the public hearing.

The funding will also assist recipients in commenting on the potential conditions that would be required, if the project is allowed to proceed. Aboriginal groups will also receive funding to review the Panel Report.
