The Ministry of Transportation remains committed to fulfilling its duty to consult requirements and will engage with local Indigenous Communities and consider their interests in the preliminary design.
Environmental Assessment Documentation
This Study will follow the approved planning process for a Group ‘A’ project under the MTO Class Environmental Assessment for Provincial Transportation Facilities (2000). Alternatives will be generated and evaluated within the Study Area based on technical and environmental factors and through engagement with Indigenous communities, public stakeholders, municipalities and government agencies. Upon completion of the study, a Transportation Environmental Study Report (TESR) will be prepared to document the design, environmental assessment and consultation. It will be available for a 30-day public review period.
