The Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project is undergoing a federal environmental assessment by an independent review panel, under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012.
The Project is also undergoing an assessment under the British Columbia Environmental Assessment Act, and requires other permits and authorizations before it can proceed.
In March 2015, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority filed an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the proposed Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project with the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency. The EIS is now undergoing a technical review by an independent review panel, which includes multiple opportunities for public comment and participation.
The environmental assessment process for the Project began in 2013, and is expected to be completed in 2018.
