Environmental impact assessment to replace the Timiskaming dam
Public Services and Procurement Canada wanted to have an environmental impact assessment performed before dismantling and building a new structure for the Timiskaming dam in Québec. The dam, which crosses the Ottawa River, serves as a key roadway and pedestrian link between Québec and Ontario. The upcoming work gave reason to believe that there would be certain impacts on users and fish habitat, including vulnerable or endangered species. The study performed under section 67 of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act focused on reducing project impacts and compensating for the loss of fish habitat.
