Public Notice
Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project - Public Comments Invited

September 23, 2013 - 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 must decide whether a federal environmental assessment is required for the proposed Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project located in British Columbia. To assist in making its decision, the Agency is seeking comments from the public on the project and its potential effects on the environment.

Written comments must be submitted by October 15, 2013 to:

Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project

410-701 West Georgia Street
Vancouver, BC V7Y 1C6
Telephone: 604-666-2431

The Agency will post a decision on its website stating whether a federal environmental assessment is required.

If it is determined that a federal environmental assessment is required, the public will have three more opportunities to comment on this project, consistent with the transparency and public engagement elements of CEAA 2012.

Projects subject to CEAA 2012 are assessed using a science-based approach. If the project is permitted to proceed to the next phase, it will continue to be subject to Canada's strong environmental laws, rigorous enforcement and follow-up, and increased fines.

The proposed project

Port Metro Vancouver proposes the construction and operation of a new three-berth marine container terminal located at Roberts Bank in Delta, British Columbia, approximately 35 kilometres south of Vancouver. Located next to the existing Deltaport and Westshore Terminals, the Project would provide an additional 2.4 million units of container capacity per year at Roberts Bank.
