Notice of Environmental Assessment Determination

Ottawa – September 29, 2014 - The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the Agency) has decided that a federal environmental assessment is not required for the Ryley Facility Expansion Project (the Project) pursuant to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012 (CEAA 2012).

In making this determination, the Agency considered the following factors as indicated in section 10 of CEAA 2012:

  • the Project Description provided by Clean Harbors Canada, Inc. (the proponent) on August 11, 2014;
  • the possibility that the carrying out of the Project may cause adverse environmental effects; and
  • comments received within the 20-day comment period.

The Agency is satisfied that the environmental effects of the Project are well understood and adequately characterized in the Project Description. The Agency is satisfied that there is little potential for the project to cause adverse environmental effects as defined in CEAA 2012. The potential project effects will be minor and localized at the project footprint. The effects will be adequately mitigated by the proponent and regulated through provincial processes.

Therefore, the Agency decided that an environmental assessment of the designated project, as proposed in the Project Description, is not required under CEAA 2012.
