September 21, 2018 — Ottawa — Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency
The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the Agency) must decide whether a federal environmental assessment is required for the proposed Southeastern Newfoundland Offshore Exploration Drilling Project, located 300 kilometres east of St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, in the Atlantic Ocean.
To help inform this decision, the Agency is seeking comments from the public and Indigenous groups on the project and its potential effects on the environment, as described in the summary of the project description.
As a next step, the Agency will post a decision on its website stating whether an environmental assessment is required. If one is required, the public will have additional opportunities to comment on the environmental assessment of the project.
All comments received will be considered public. Written comments in either official language must be submitted by October 11, 2018 to:
