Review Panel for Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project Announces Date for Public Hearing

OTTAWA, March 1, 2019 –The Review Panel established to conduct an environmental assessment of the proposed Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project (the Project) has determined that the information provided by the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority can now be discussed at the public hearing.

The Review Panel recognizes that a number of outstanding concerns and questions remain, and considers that the most effective approach to advance the Panel's understanding of the potential adverse environmental effects of the Project and the marine shipping associated with the Project is to move to the next stage of the environmental assessment process. The public hearing is designed to address many of the topics the Panel and the public remain concerned about.

Next Steps

The Review Panel intends to start the hearing on May 14, 2019, in Delta, British Columbia. A hearing schedule with the timing and locations of all hearing sessions will be made public once confirmed. The hearing will be open to the public to observe in person or via a live webcast and/or audio-cast.


If a member of the public has an interest in the Project, they may participate at the public hearing by filing a written submission, or making an oral statement. Anyone who wishes to participate at the public hearing must register as a Participant by March 22, 2019. Detailed information on how to request to participate and what should be included in a request is contained in the Public Hearing Procedures, Attachment A.

Media are also invited to observe the public hearing and do not need to register in advance.
