Impact Assessment

The Government of Canada is committed to ensuring that the views of Canadians inform the future direction of HFR. Early engagement and outreach to communities and Indigenous Peoples has begun.

Engagement will continue throughout the various phases of the project, including for the purpose of various regulatory reviews like the federal Impact Assessment required under the Impact Assessment Act and the Canadian Transportation Agency’s review required under the Canadian Transportation Act.
