How the Public Can Participate

Get Involved

The public participation process allows the general public to prepare and submit meaningful input so that the Minister can consider the feedback in the final decision.

The Public Participation Fact Sheet provides information on

  • The Environmental Assessment review process,
  • The proposed project’s potential environmental impacts, and
  • Proposed mitigation plans.

Duty to Consult

Consultation is integral to the EA process. In some instances, projects determined to be a development under the Environmental Assessment Act may require the ministry to consult with First Nations and Métis organizations.

When the Minister’s decision of a development leads to actions that have the potential to adversely impact Treaty and Aboriginal rights and traditional land uses, the ministry has a Duty to Consult with First Nations and Métis communities in advance of the decision. The ministry will consult in accordance with the First Nation and Métis Consultation Policy Framework (June 2010), and will approach its duty to consult with First Nations and Métis with good faith and integrity.

Documents Available for Public Comment

When the technical review of a proponent's Environmental Impact Statement is complete, Section 11 of The Environmental Assessment Act requires the Minister make the Statement and the conclusions of the technical review available to the public.
