Beauport 2020 Project Gets Support

The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the Agency) has allocated almost $200,000 to 13 applicants to assist their participation in the federal environmental assessment of the Port of Quebec Deep-Water Multipurpose Wharf Project – Beauport 2020 Project, located in Quebec.

This funding was made available to the public and Indigenous groups through the Participant Funding Program administered by the Agency.

It will enable participation in upcoming steps of the environmental assessment, which include reviewing and providing comments on the Environmental Impact Statement or on the summary, the draft Environmental Assessment Report, and on potential environmental assessment conditions.

The Beauport 2020 Project

The Quebec Port Authority is proposing to extend eastward by 610 meters the existing wharf in order to be able to add two deep-water berths to its bulk transport facilities in the Beauport sector.

The project would include the filling of the area behind the wharf and the construction of a containment dyke to create 17.5 hectares of additional area for the development of equipment for material handling, transshipment and storage, the extension of an existing railway track on the Port Authority property and the extension of the emergency emissary of the Beauport wastewater treatment station.

The project also includes the addition of a breakwater and work to recharge and consolidate the Beauport bay area to protect it from erosion.
