Public Notice
Gazoduq Project — Public Comments Invited

What is happening?

January 30, 2020 — On January 22, 2020, the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada (the Agency) decided that an impact assessment is required for the proposed Gazoduq Project, located between northeastern Ontario and Saguenay, Quebec.

As part of the planning phase of the impact assessment, the Agency invites the public and Indigenous groups and Nations to review and provide feedback on the draft Tailored Impact Statement Guidelines (Guidelines) and the draft Public Participation Plan.

The draft Guidelines outline the project-specific factors that will be considered in the assessment and provide direction to the proponent, Gazoduq Inc., on the information and studies required in its Impact Statement. The draft Public Participation Plan explains how the public will be engaged throughout the review process. The Plan provides details on how and when public participation opportunities will take place for each phase of the impact assessment.

How can I participate?

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.

Written comments in either official language will be accepted until March 10, 2020.

The Agency also invites the public to attend community meetings on the project. Representatives from the Agency, will deliver presentations at 1 and 6:30 p.m., manage discussion sessions and will be available to answer questions from participants throughout the meetings. The Canada Energy Regulator will also be available to provide information and answer questions.
