Notice of determination

2022/12/09 – Indigenous Services Canada has determined that the proposed Lac Seul First Nation Broadband Upgrade is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.

The determination was based on a consideration of the following factors:

  • There will be positive impacts on the rights of Indigenous peoples, associated with the construction broadband upgrade which will improve the community's communication and connectivity for individual and community services.   
  • During construction activities mitigation measures to ensure the protection of the environment, and safety of members of the community will be implemented.  Mitigation measures proposed for the project have been prepared and reviewed by ISC.

Implementation of mitigation measures is required for the project to address:

  • Vegetation
  • Air & Noise
  • Aquatic habitat
  • Species at risk

Indigenous Services Canada is satisfied that that the carrying out of the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.

Therefore, Indigenous Services Canada may carry out the project, exercise any power, perform any duty or function, or provide financial assistance to enable the project to be carried out in whole or in part.
