Federal Funding for Trois-Rivières Port Expansion Project
The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency has allocated federal funds to three recipients to assist their participation in the federal environmental assessment of the proposed Trois-Rivières Port Facilities Expansion Project, Quebec.
The funding was made available through the Agency’s Participant Funding Program.
It will assist the participation of the public and Indigenous groups in upcoming steps of the environmental assessment, which include reviewing and providing comments on the Environmental Impact Statement or on the summary thereof, the draft Environmental Assessment Report, and the potential environmental assessment conditions.
Trois-Rivières Port Facilities Expansion Project will consist of installing a multi-user terminal with a transshipping area, a short-term storage area, connecting wells and pipelines the length of the wharfs, as well as an access road on the west side.
Three new 231-meter berths will be also built. A retaining wall and riprap are also planned for the far western end of the new facilities.
