The federal Detailed Impact Analysis (DIA) process is a technical regulatory process governed by Parks Canada. This project will need to successfully complete this process to obtain construction permits. The City is working closely with Parks Canada through the Environmental Detailed Impact Assessment (DIA) process as part of the project's Phase 4 work. One of the key aims of the DIA is to determine the impacts of construction and to propose mitigation measures to minimize impacts to the environment. The involvement of the selected project delivery team is needed before the DIA process can be finalized since the construction methodology hasn't been fully explored at this time.
Once Parks Canada has reviewed and approved the DIA document, it will be posted to the City's project webpage for public review and comment. Stakeholders and the public will then have the opportunity to review the DIA report and provide meaningful input. The City will notify stakeholders and the public about the DIA review opportunity and any other opportunities for engagement on this work.
