Sorel-Tracy Port Terminal Project — Participant Funding Available

by ahnationtalk on September 29, 202249 Views

September 29, 2022 — Funding provided by the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada (the Agency) is now available to help the public and Indigenous peoples participate in the impact assessment process for the proposed Sorel-Tracy Port Terminal Project, located in Quebec.

Funding is available for eligible individuals and groups to assist their participation during the impact assessment’s planning phase. During the current comment period, which ends October 17, 2022, the public and Indigenous peoples are invited to review the summary of the Initial Project Description and provide comments. The Agency will retroactively reimburse eligible participants for their participation in this first comment period.

Applications received by October 28, 2022, will be considered.

To apply for funding, complete the Application Form for the Planning Phase available on the Agency’s website (canada.ca/iaac) under Funding Programs. For more information, contact the Participant Funding Program by writing to fp-paf@iaac-aeic.gc.ca or by calling 1-866-582-1884.

As a next step, the Agency will determine whether a federal impact assessment is required for the project. If one is required, eligible applicants will receive additional funding to participate in a second comment period to provide feedback on the draft Tailored Impact Statement Guidelines and the draft Public Participation Plan.

For media inquiries, contact the Agency’s media relations team by writing to media@iaac-aeic.gc.ca or calling 343-549-3870.
