Consultation

Advisory Groups and Indigenous Communities


Consultation with regulatory agencies, municipalities, Indigenous communities, members of the public and other interest groups will be undertaken during this study. Discussions with these stakeholders will focus on data collection, the generation and assessment of alternatives, the evaluation and selection of the preferred alternative, the development of mitigation measures to reduce or avoid potential environmental impacts, and to seek overall support for this study. Several advisory groups have been formed to support this study. Many of these groups were involved during Stage 1 of the study, and will continue to be involved during Stage 2 (by activating a link below, you'll be brought to the corresponding section of information on this page):

Community Advisory Group

The Community Advisory Group includes representation from interest groups, organizations, and individuals in and around the study area. The Community Advisory Group enables direct communication between the community and the project team, and Community Advisory Group members are asked to provide comments and suggestions on study findings; provide insight and discussion on potential issues, challenges, and opportunities; and participate in developing strategies to address the issues and opportunities. At the first Community Workshop and at Public Information Centre #1, information on the Community Advisory Group was provided and stakeholders interested in joining the Community Advisory Group were encouraged to apply for membership.
