The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency has commenced federal environmental assessments for the proposed Pelican Renewable Generating Station Project and the proposed Sundog Renewable Generating Station Project located approximately 180 kilometres and 130 kilometres, respectively, upstream of Fort McMurray, Alta.
The Minister of Environment and Climate Change, by Ministerial Orders, has designated these projects as requiring environmental assessments under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012.
The Agency invites the public and Indigenous groups to comment on which aspects of the environment may be affected by these projects and what should be examined during the environmental assessments, as detailed in the draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) Guidelines. Comments received will be taken into consideration in finalizing the EIS Guidelines for both projects before issuing them to the proponents, Pelican RGS GP Inc. and Sundog RGS GP Inc.
This is the first of three opportunities for the public and Indigenous groups to comment on the environmental assessments of the projects.
All comments received will be considered public. Written comments in either official language must be submitted by February 9 to:
