Notice of Environmental Assessment Determination

Ottawa – February 1, 2018 - The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the Agency) has decided that a federal environmental assessment is not required for the Suncor Energy Coke Fired Boiler Replacement Project pursuant to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012 (CEAA 2012).

In making this determination, the Agency considered the following factors as indicated in section 10 of CEAA 2012:

  • the description of the project provided by the proponent on December 4, 2017;
  • the possibility that the carrying out of the project may cause adverse environmental effects; and,
  • comments received within the 20-day comment period.

The Agency is of the view that there is limited potential for the Project to cause adverse environmental effects on areas of federal jurisdiction as defined in CEAA 2012. Environmental effects that are within provincial jurisdiction would be addressed through provincial regulations.

Therefore, the Agency decided that an environmental assessment of the designated project, as proposed in the Project Description, is not required under CEAA 2012.
