Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Transport Canada, and the Sept-Îles Port Authority have taken the following course of action on March 11, 2014 relating to the comprehensive study of the Kami Iron Ore Project. The authorities may exercise any power or perform any duty or function with respect to the project because, after taking into consideration the comprehensive study report and taking into account the implementation of appropriate mitigation measures, the authorities are of the opinion that the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.

Implementation of mitigation measures is required for the project to address:

  • Atmospheric Environment;
  • Landforms, Soils, Snow, and Ice;
  • Water Resources;
  • Wetlands;
  • Freshwater Fish, Fish Habitat and Fisheries;
  • Birds, Other Wildlife and their Habitats, and Protected Areas;
  • Species at Risk and Species of Conservation Concern;
  • Historic and Cultural Resources;
  • Current Use of Lands and Resources for Traditional Purposes by Aboriginal Persons;
  • Other Current Use of Lands and Resources;
  • Community Services and Infrastructure;
  • Health and Community Health; and,
  • Economy, Employment and Business.

A follow-up program, as defined under the former Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, to verify the accuracy of the environmental assessment and/or determine the effectiveness of any measures taken to mitigate the adverse environmental effects is required for this Project.
