Public Getting Chance To Express Opinion on Proposed Frontier Oilsands

You’re getting a chance to share your opinion on a proposed mega-oilsands project north of Fort McMurray.

The Impact Assessment Agency of Canada is holding a public comment period for Teck Resources Limited’s Frontier Oilsands Mine as part of the environmental assessment process for the project.

Frontier, which was recently recommended for approval by a Joint Review Panel, would be 110 km north of Fort McMurray – near Wood Buffalo National Park – and see around 260,000 barrels of bitumen produced per day.

It’s also expected to create around 7,000 jobs through construction and another 2,500 in their operations.

Comments made during the public period may become legally binding on the proponent if the Minister of Environment and Climate Change decides the project may proceed.

You can submit your comments by visiting the Government of Canada’s website with deadline set for November 24.

The Minister of Environment and Climate Change will make a decision on the project following the public comment period.
