Saguenay Terminal Project on the Table

The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency is conducting a federal environmental assessment of the proposed Marine Terminal Project on the North Shore of the Saguenay, located in Quebec.

The project, proposed by the Saguenay Port Authority, includes construction and operation of a new multi-user marine terminal to service the north shore of the Saguenay River at the municipality of Sainte-Rose-du-Nord, located approximately 45 kilometers from the city of Saguenay.

The project calls for the construction of a wharf, a ship loader, silos, concentrate handling facilities and related buildings. An access road to the wharf 1 to 1.5 kilometer in length will have to be built.

The berthing capacity of the wharf would be designed to accommodate bulk cargo vessels with a minimum of 50,000 deadweight tonnage.

This is the third of four opportunities for the public to comment on this project. All comments received will be considered public.

Deadline for sending comments is October 15, 2016.
