Site C to undergo joint environmental assessment


Bob Zimmer, Member of Parliament for Prince George-Peace River, is pleased with the Minsters' decision.

"“It is great to see that the process will be harmonized and more efficient – as it should be."

A draft agreement of the joint review is currently available for public assessment. It outlines the process for the review and lays out a timeline for key steps in the process.

The public will have one month, from October 7 to November 7, 2011, to submit comments on the draft agreement. The draft agreement can be found on the Canadian Environmental Assessment Registry at www.ceaa-acee.gc.ca, reference number 11-05-63919 or the British Columbia Environmental Assessment Office website at www.eao.gov.bc.ca.

Individuals or groups interested in taking part in the environmental assessment process can now apply for funding from the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency. $140,000 is available under its participant funding program.

To submit an application or to obtain additional information on the program, visit www.ceaa-acee.gc.ca. Applications are due by November 7, 2011.
