Notice determination

November 20, 2019 – Indigenous Services Canada has determined that the proposed Atikameksheng Anishnawbek On Reserve New Housing is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.


The determination was based on a consideration of the following factors:

  • The community has an operational First Nations Land Management regime, which allows the community to undertake a detailed assessment of projects which meet or exceed Canadian Environmental Laws
  • The new homes will provide a positive impact on community members by ensuring adequate living space is available for community members
  •  Adequate mitigation measures have been proposed for the project



Implementation of mitigation measures is required for the project to address:

  • All homes will be constructed according to provincial and federal building codes
  • All tree clearing will take place during the non-breeding bird season, which is January to March, 2020
  • All waste will be segregated into appropriate streams, and disposed of at an approved landfill facility


Indigenous Services Canada is satisfied that that the carrying out of the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.

Therefore, Indigenous Services Canada may carry out the project, exercise any power, perform any duty or function, or provide financial assistance to enable the project to be carried out in whole or in part.
