What was this engagement about?
Rio Tinto Alcan (Proponent) is proposing to construct and operate a replacement infrastructure project including an extension to an existing marine terminal, a barge berth, tug dock and laydown facility. The proposed Terminal A Extension Project (proposed Project) is to be located at the Port of Kitimat and within proximity to the District of Kitimat and the Haisla Nation Kitamaat Village.
The proposed Project is subject to review under British Columbia’s Environmental Assessment Act. The Proponent has now submitted its application to obtain an environmental assessment certificate, which is required before any work can be undertaken on the proposed Project.
How can my contribution make a difference?
Comments related to the Application were accepted from June 15, 2015 to July 23, 2015. The intention of seeking public comments was to ensure all potential effects – environmental, economic, social, heritage and health – that might result from the proposed Project are identified for consideration.
Members of the public were invited to submit comments about the proposed project online, or by mail and fax until July 23, 2015.
