April 2, 2024 — JX LNG Canada Ltd. (the proponent) is proposing to develop a new liquefied natural gas facility located about 30 kilometres north of Prince George, British Columbia.

The Impact Assessment Agency of Canada (the Agency) and British Columbia's Environmental Assessment Office (the EAO) are working cooperatively for the initial phase of the project's review. You are invited to review the Initial Project Description and provide feedback. A summary document, in English or French, is available on the project's Registry page (reference number 87307).

The 30-day comment period starts April 2, 2024, and ends May 2, 2024, at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time (PDT).

Comments received will support the preparation of a joint Summary of Issues and Engagement document that will be given to the proponent to help it write the Detailed Project Description. Comments only need to be submitted once to either the Agency or the EAO to be considered in both the federal and provincial assessment processes. Comments are considered public and will be published online. Feedback sent to the Agency may be submitted in English or French.

Substitution Request

The Government of British Columbia has requested that the federal impact assessment, if one is warranted, be substituted to the province. If the federal Minister of Environment and Climate Change grants the request, the EAO would conduct the project's impact assessment on behalf of the Agency, meeting both federal and provincial legislative requirements. The Agency is seeking your comments on this request.

Additional Information

In October 2023, the Minister of Environment and Climate Change announced the Government of Canada's guidance on the interim administration of the Impact Assessment Act (the IAA), following the recent decision by the Supreme Court of Canada on the constitutionality of the IAA. According to the interim measures, advancing projects through the impact assessment process is at the discretion of the proponent. The Agency remains committed to collaborating with proponents to advance the assessment of projects and discuss the information requirements.
