Mark Selby, Chair & CEO of Canada Nickel said, “As we now enter the second phase of the Impact Assessment process, we’d like to express our appreciation to our partners, stakeholders, and Indigenous communities for their continued engagement, and to the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada for their timely actions in efficiently progressing the Impact Assessment process for Crawford.

An Important Step for the Crawford Nickel Project
The Impact Assessment process is a planning and decision-making tool used by regulators, Indigenous communities, the general public, stakeholders, and proponents to emphasize the positive and resolve or mitigate the negative impacts of a proposed major project, and to ensure that the development of the project is in the public’s best interest. The Impact Statement Phase, the second phase of the process, culminates with the proponent’s submission of the Impact Statement, a detailed technical document that identifies and assesses the potential impacts of a project and the measures proposed to mitigate those effects.
