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

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

•             Inspection by an Ontario Building Code (OBC) – Part 8 qualified individual

•             Installation of septic system as per Ontario Building Code Part 8

•             Installation of septic system by a licensed installer under the Ontario Building Code

•             Inspection of the septic system to be carried out by an Environmental Public Health Officer, First Nations and Inuit Health Branch, Indigenous Services Canada


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.
