    Funding for public input on the Roberts Bank Terminal II environmental assessment 

    Environmental funding T2Hi Funds Fans!  If you are interested in voicing your concerns over the environmental impact of the proposed T2 project, here’s your opportunity.

    The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency is making funding available through its Participant Funding Program to assist the participation of the public and Aboriginal groups in the upcoming steps of the environmental review of the Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project.

    Funding is available for eligible individuals and groups to assist their participation in the upcoming environmental assessment, including reviewing and providing comments on the Review Panel Terms of Reference and the Environmental Impact Statement, and participating in the public hearing.

    Port Metro Vancouver proposes the construction and operation of a new three-berth marine container terminal located at Roberts Bank in Delta, British Columbia, approximately 35 kilometres south of Vancouver. The proposed project, to be located next to the existing Deltaport and Westshore Terminals, would provide an additional 2.4 million units of container capacity per year at Roberts Bank.

    Applications received by March 7, 2014 will be considered.

    CEAA Funding for Participants 

    Map of BC locations from tasekomines.com

    Hi Funds Fans!  Welcome to a glorious Friday.  Today, in the Fraser Valley, it is a beautiful, sunny day.  Many a barbeque will be lit tonight, me thinks.  I know mine will be and, since I already burned the hair off my hand from Wednesdays barbeque lighting event, I feel confident that there just isn’t any more hair left to singe.

    Today, we’d like to highlight some of B.C.’s mining activities and ways that you can participate in the decision making process.  As you may know, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA) administers a Participant Funding Program which supports individuals and non-profit organizations and Aboriginal groups interested in participating in federal environmental assessments.

    This program is intended to ensure that interested parties to development projects have the opportunity to participate in comprehensive studies, assessments by review panels or by joint review panels and helps to ensure that your views are considered. Limited funding can cover eligible expenses, such as travel costs and fees for experts.

    Eligibility to apply for funding under this program includes those who:

    • have a direct, local interest in the project, such as living or owning property in the project area;
    • have community knowledge or Aboriginal traditional knowledge relevant to the environmental assessment; or
    • have expert information relevant to the anticipated environmental effects of the project.

    As Fundsblogger subscribes to CEAA updates, here are a few that are relevant to projects being considered within our beautiful Province:
