If, after consulting with the Project Team, stakeholders have unresolved concerns, a formal written request may be sent to the Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks to make a Part II Order (i.e. a request to “bump up”) for this project which may require that an individual environmental assessment be conducted for this study. The decision rests with the Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks. You are encouraged to Contact Us if you have any questions or concerns about this study.
