Minister decides federal Impact Assessment not required for Mill transformation

On Friday, June 10, 2022, Hon. Steven Guilbeault, Canada’s Minister of Environment and Climate Change, determined that Northern Pulp’s proposed transformation does not warrant designation under the federal Impact Assessment Act. This means that we will not be required to complete a federal Impact Assessment.

Our team is focused on completing the thorough provincial Class II Environmental Assessment. Federal departments such as Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Health Canada, Transport Canada, and Environment and Climate Change Canada participate as federal experts in the provincial environmental assessment. We look forward to working with them and Nova Scotia government departments throughout the EA process.
