The Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project has been undergoing a federal environmental assessment since 2013. In 2016, an independent review panel was appointed by the minister of environment and climate change to lead the assessment, under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012. During the environmental assessment, we conducted four rounds of public engagement, consulted with Indigenous groups, and participated in meetings with regulators, government, stakeholders.

The review phase of the environmental assessment concluded in August 2019 with the closing of the public record following a six-week public hearing. The independent review panel evaluated what they heard and the information received throughout the environmental assessment process to develop its Federal Review Panel Report for the Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project. This was submitted to the minister of environment and climate change on March 27, 2020. The minister is now reviewing the recommendations and is expected to issue a decision regarding the approval of the project in late 2020.
