The proposed amendment

The Permit Holder proposes to carry out physical activities related to the completion of the Univar Canada Rail Expansion with Tent up until August 31, 2022. This would require an extension to the approved project permit (PER No. 20-029), which has an expiry date of August 31, 2021. 

The extension is being requested as a result of project scheduling delays. The scope of works that will be completed during the extended period remains unchanged, and includes the construction of a new 120 metre rail storage track, and the installation of a fabric tent over the new and existing track. 

For more information on the approved project permit, please visit the project page on the port authority website.
