Decision Statement

June 27, 2018 – In conformity with the approval of the Governor in Council, the Ministers of Natural Resources and Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard have taken the following course of action on June 19, 2018, relating to the comprehensive study of the Ajax Mine Project. The authorities shall not exercise any power or perform any duty or function with respect to the project because, after taking into consideration the Comprehensive Study Report, comments from Indigenous groups and the public, and the implementation of appropriate mitigation measures, the authorities are of the opinion that the project is likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects that cannot be justified in the circumstances.
