Cedar LNG Enters Substituted Environmental Assessment Process

The federal Minister of Environment and Climate Change has agreed to the substitution of the provincial environmental assessment process for the federal process for a 17th project – the Cedar LNG Project. The use of one assessment for both levels of government will eliminate the duplication of having two assessments for a single project, while maintaining environmental protection and Indigenous consultation. The provincial environmental assessment will meet all federal and provincial requirements.
