The Government of Canada has announced that it will launch a strategic assessment to provide guidance on how future new thermal coal mine projects will be assessed under the Impact Assessment Act. The strategic assessment will include, but not be limited to: environmental and health impacts of thermal coal mining; market analysis of projected demand for thermal coal, including economic impacts and impact on jobs in Canada; and the use of thermal coal mining, including its impact on Canada’s international commitments and initiatives. Draft terms of reference for the strategic assessment of thermal coal mining will be available online for public comments early in 2020.
