Public Notice
Gazoduq Project — Public Comments Invited

Update — November 15, 2019 — The deadline to submit written comments has been extended to November 22, 2019.

The Agency is aware that an issue with a mail drop service in some remote communities and a technical issue with the Registry's online commenting tool on Android devices prevented some members of the public from submitting comments during the participation period on the Initial Project Description. All comments received by November 22, 2019 will be considered. This project will benefit from several opportunities to participate throughout the impact assessment process. This is the first public comment period in the process.

October 22, 2019 — The Impact Assessment Agency of Canada (the Agency) has accepted an initial project description for the proposed Gazoduq Project, a natural gas pipeline approximately 780 kilometres long, located between northeastern Ontario and Saguenay, Quebec.

The Agency invites the public and Indigenous groups to review the summary of the initial project description and provide feedback related to the proposed project. Comments received will support the Agency in the preparation of a summary of issues. Once completed, the Agency will provide the summary of issues to the proponent.

Written comments in either official language will be accepted until November 12, 2019.

Comments can be submitted online by visiting the project home page on the Canadian Impact Assessment Registry (reference number 80264). All comments received will be published online as part of the project file.

The Proposed Project

Gazoduq Inc. is proposing the construction and operation of a natural gas pipeline approximately 780 kilometres long between northeastern Ontario and Saguenay, Quebec. This proposed project would connect TC Energy Limited's existing main natural gas transmission system in northeastern Ontario to the proposed Énergie Saguenay Project, a natural gas liquefaction facility by GNL Québec in Saguenay, Québec. The project would also include three compressor stations, one metering station, approximately 25 block valves and a dedicated control centre.
