Coordinated Federal and Provincial Processes

If the access road is subject to both the Federal and Provincial Environmental Assessment (EA) processes, a coordinated approach would be taken. A Coordinated EA enables the Proponent (Marten Falls First Nation) and the government agencies to work together to efficiently coordinate the review periods in the Provincial and Federal processes. The idea is to generate one report for the Project that satisfies both processes. Separate approvals are often still required by both governments.
