Canada’s Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault formally approved on Wednesday the Bay du Nord offshore oil project, providing a positive shot in the arm for Newfoundland and Labrador, and for the region’s workers, families and communities. Following a thorough and science-based environmental assessment conducted by the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada (the Agency) over four years, the approval follows conclusions in the Agency’s Environmental Assessment Report that determined the proposed Bay du Nord Development Project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects when mitigation measures are taken into account. The project is therefore allowed to proceed with strict measures to protect the environment.
