Public Notice
LNG Canada Export Terminal Project — Public Comments Invited on Proposed Changes to Conditions

What is happening?

December 10, 2020 — The Minister of Environment and Climate Change approved the LNG Canada Export Terminal Project, a natural gas liquefaction facility and marine terminal located in the District of Kitimat, British Columbia, in June 2015. The approval was subject to conditions the proponent, LNG Canada Development Inc., must fulfill throughout the life of the project.

The Impact Assessment Agency of Canada (the Agency) is proposing changes to certain conditions, including revising the underwater noise thresholds and exclusion boundaries for the protection of marine mammals during construction. The Agency conducted an analysis of the environmental effects associated with the proposed changes.

How can I participate?

The Agency is now asking the public and Indigenous groups to review its draft Analysis Report and comment on the proposed amendments to the conditions.

Written comments in either official language will be accepted until January 25, 2021.

Comments can be submitted online by visiting the project home page on the Canadian Impact Assessment Registry (reference number 80038). Comments received will be published online as part of the project file.

The Agency's draft Analysis Report, the proposed amended conditions, and information on alternative means of submitting comments are also available on the Registry.

The Agency recognizes it is more challenging to undertake meaningful public engagement and Indigenous consultation in light of the circumstances arising from COVID-19. The Agency continues to assess the situation, adjust consultation activities and provide flexibility as needed in order to prioritize the health and safety of all Canadians and conduct meaningful engagement with interested groups.
