Notice of Determination

March 6, 2023 – Indigenous Services Canada has determined that the proposed Lot Servicing for Future Houses Project at Wasauksing First Nation is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.

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

  • Lot Servicing provides new housing for the community to accomodate the growing population;
  • Best Management Practices related to lot servicing will be implemented.

Implementation of mitigation measures is required for the project to lesson or avoid potential adverse effects to:

  • Soil/Geology;
  • Air quality and noise;
  • Vegetation; and
  • Wildlife and habitat, including Species at Risk and Migratory Birds.

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.
