May 13 2020 – Transport Canada has determined that the proposed project, the removal of a crane at the Cap-aux-Meules wharf is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.

This determination was based on a consideration of the following factors:

•    impacts on rights of Indigenous peoples;

•    Indigenous knowledge;

•    community knowledge;

•    comments received from the public; and

•    technically and economically feasible mitigation measures.

Mitigation measures taken into account for this determination are:
