The Agency will post a decision on its website stating whether a federal environmental assessment is required.

If it is determined that a federal environmental assessment is required, members of the public will have three more opportunities to comment on this project.

Projects subject to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012 are assessed using a science-based approach. If the project is permitted to proceed to the next phase, it will continue to be subject to Canada's environmental laws, enforcement and follow-up, and fines for non-compliance.

The Proposed Project

ArcelorMittal Dofasco is proposing to contain contaminated sediment within the Kenilworth Avenue Boat Slip by constructing and monitoring new facilities, used for the disposal of hazardous waste, including an engineered in-situ cap and a separate engineered containment area. The project is located in Hamilton Harbour in the City of Hamilton, in Ontario.
