Public Consultation Program


The Public Consultation Program component of the Class EA process involves you, your neighbours and other individuals and organizations with an interest in this study. We encourage and welcome your input about the existing conditions in the study area, what the potential solutions may be, how the different alternatives will be evaluated, plus any other issues and thoughts you may have regarding the overall project.

The Public Consultation Program was initiated in December 2010 with publication of the Notice of Study Commencement. Documentation relating to the Public Consultation Program has been included below. Please note that comments to the project team may be submitted anytime by contacting us at

Comments will be maintained for reference throughout the project and will become part of the public record. Under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA) and the Environmental Assessment Act, unless otherwise stated in the submission, any personal information, such as: name, address and telephone number included in a submission will become part of the public record files for this matter and will be released, if requested, to any person.
