Nova Scotia Power proposed power line relocation
Nova Scotia Power is proposing to relocate and upgrade power lines in and around the community of Ingonish, NS, along the Cabot Trail, including within parts of Cape Breton Highlands National Park. The project intends to improve electrical service to community members residing in northern Cape Breton.
Parks Canada has a rigorous review and environmental assessment process that ensures all proposals comply with these limits and healthy ecosystems are maintained.
As part of the process, Nova Scotia Power has developed a detailed impact analysis (DIA) for public review and feedback. The draft DIA is how Parks Canada will ensure this proposal does not cause significant adverse environmental effects and is well designed to avoid or mitigate unfavourable impacts.
During the consultation process, Parks Canada is working with Nova Scotia Power to ensure opportunities to comment are available to Canadians who wish to provide input. We are inviting comments on the draft DIA from June 25 to July 25, 2019.
Your input is welcome in any of these ways:
- Reviewing an electronic copy of the draft DIA
- Picking up a paper copy at Parks Canada Visitor Information Centres in Chéticamp or Ingonish, Nova Scotia
- Emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or phoning 902-733-3526
Nova Scotia Power will demonstrate in the final report how public concerns have been addressed prior to approval of the final DIA by Parks Canada.
