Public Notice
Deep Geologic Repository Project — Public Comment Period

June 3, 2015 — The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency is undertaking a public comment period for the last phase of the environmental assessment process for the proposed Deep Geologic Repository (DGR) Project for Low and Intermediate Level Radioactive Waste in Ontario.

The Agency invites Aboriginal groups, members of the public and registered participants of the DGR review, to comment on the potential conditions related to possible mitigation measures and follow-up requirements that could be necessary, if the project is authorized to proceed.

All comments received will be considered public. Written comments in either official language should be sent by September 1, 2015 by mail or email to:

National Programs
Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency
22nd Floor, 160 Elgin Street, Ottawa ON K1A 0H3

The comments received on the potential conditions will be taken into account by the Minister of the Environment for the environmental assessment (EA) decision statement. In order to accommodate the 90-day comment period, the 120-day timeline for the EA decision is being extended to December 2, 2015.

If the project is authorized to proceed to the next phase of the permitting process, the decision statement will include the conditions which will be legally binding on the proponent.

For more information on the environmental assessment of the project, visit the Agency's website, reference number 17520.
