Proposed Project Albany – Project Update
The Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for CanPacific Potash’s proposed Project Albany has been submitted to the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment. An EIS is the report that documents any potential project affects and mitigation measures and is used by the regulators in the decision-making process. The Environmental Assessment Act requires that a proponent receive the approval of the Minister of Environment before proceeding with a development.
Based on similar projects of this size and nature, CanPacific Potash anticipates to receive initial technical comments from the Ministry of Environment in Q4 2018, followed by a period of response and finally public review. CanPacific Potash understands that the success of the proposed Project Albany depends on strong working relationships with local communities which is why we are committed to keeping stakeholders and the generally public informed and updated. We will continue to update you as the proposed Project Albany progresses and provide opportunities for stakeholders and members of the public to ask questions, and provide feedback.
Please feel free to contact us anytime if you have any questions and/or comments.
