Notice of Determination

Ottawa, Ontario – March 8, 2022 The National Capital Commission has determined that the proposed project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects with the application of all recommended mitigation measures.

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

  • impacts on rights of Indigenous peoples;
  • community knowledge;
  • comments received from the public;
  • technically and economically feasible mitigation measures; and
  • the components of the environment that are within the legislative authority of Parliament identified in the "Definitions" section of the Impact Assessment Act.

Mitigation measures will be implemented to address potential adverse effects on the following components of the environment:

  • migratory birds;
  • species at risk;
  • groundwater;
  • surface water;
  • soil quality;
  • air quality;
  • vegetation;
  • human health;
  • archaeological resources; and
  • historical resources

After reviewing the comments received and conducting an internal review of effects, the National Capital Commission is satisfied that the implementation of the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects, as long as all mitigation measures are applied. Therefore, the National Capital Commission 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.
