The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency is making funding available through its Participant Funding Program to assist the participation of the public and Indigenous groups in the federal environmental assessment of the proposed Trois-Rivières Port Facilities Expansion Project, located in Trois-Rivières, Quebec.
Funding is available for eligible individuals and groups to assist their participation in upcoming steps of the environmental assessment, which include reviewing and providing comments on the Environmental Impact Statement or on the summary thereof, the draft Environmental Assessment Report, and the potential environmental assessment conditions.
Applications received by December 15, 2016 will be considered.
The Trois-Rivières Port Facilities Expansion Project will consist of installing a multi-user terminal with a transshipping area, a short-term storage area, connecting wells and pipelines the length of the wharfs, as well as an access road on the west side.
Three new 231-meter berths will be built. A retaining wall and riprap are also planned for the far western end of the new facilities.
