Public Comments Invited — Milton Logistics Hub Project

May 22, 2015 — Ottawa — Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency

As part of the strengthened and modernized Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012 (CEAA 2012) put in place to support the government's Responsible Resource Development Initiative, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the Agency) has commenced a federal environmental assessment of the proposed Milton Logistics Hub Project, located in Milton, Ontario, about 50 kilometres west of Toronto.

The Agency invites the public to comment on which aspects of the environment may be affected by this project and what should be examined during the environmental assessment, as detailed in the draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) Guidelines.

Consistent with the transparency and public engagement elements of CEAA 2012, this is the second of four opportunities for the public to comment on this project. All comments received will be considered public. Written comments must be submitted by June 21, 2015 to:

Milton Logistics Hub Project
