Update on the engagement for environmental considerations - Detailed Impact Assessment

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the conversation around the federal environmental assessment of the project, also known as the Detailed Impact Assessment (DIA).  The team is currently compiling all the questions and comments received into a report, which will be submitted along with the DIA for Parks Canada's review. Residents will be able to see the public consultation review on the project website as well as the City's Get Involved site in the next few months.
