The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency is conducting a federal environmental assessment for the proposed Port of Quebec Deep-Water Wharf Project – Beauport Sector.

The government officials reported that since the previous public consultation period on the proponent’s Environmental Impact Statement, the Agency has received updates on the proposed project.

Therefore, the Agency is inviting the public and Indigenous peoples to comment on the project’s potential environmental effects and on the proposed measures to prevent or mitigate those effects.

The deadline for sending comments on the proposed Port of Quebec Deep-Water Wharf Project is June 28, 2019.

About the Proposal

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 container storage.

The proposal also calls for 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.
