Construction of a new breakwater and service area at the Grand quai des pêcheurs - Blanc-Sablon, Côte-Nord

The proposed project consists primarily of the construction of a new breakwater northeast of the harbour. It is planned to set up a riprap over a distance of approximately 250 m by about 30 m wide from the north shore in an easterly direction to achieve this. Also, the current service area will be extended over a distance of approximately 30 m long by 30 m wide.

July 29, 2022

Transport Canada (TC), Fisheries and Oceans Canada - Fish and Fish Habitat Protection Program (DFO-FFHPP) and Fisheries and Oceans Canada - Small Craft Harbours (DFO-SCH) have issued its Notice of Determination and determined that the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.

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

· impacts on rights of Indigenous peoples;

· Indigenous knowledge;

· community knowledge;

· comments received from the public; and

· technically and economically feasible mitigation measures.

 

The authorities are satisfied that the project is unlikely to cause significant adverse environmental effects. Mitigation measures will be taken for several elements of the environment including: air, water, fish and avian fauna.

 

Consequently, the project can proceed.
