The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) is seeking comments during a 90-day public comment period on the draft environmental impact statement (EIS), for the proposed Rook l Project submitted by the proponent, NexGen Energy Ltd (NexGen). The draft EIS and supporting documents can be accessed by visiting the Canadian Impact Assessment Registry for the Rook l Project.

The draft EIS provides an analysis of the project's potential environmental effects and measures to mitigate those potential impacts.

The public comment period gives Indigenous nations and communities, members of the public, and government departments and agencies an opportunity to submit their views in writing to the CNSC on the adequacy of the information presented in the EIS, as measured against the Generic Guidelines for the Preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement pursuant to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012 (the Guidelines), and on the technical merit of the information presented. The Guidelines provide direction to the proponent and identify the information that is required in the EIS.

Written comments must be submitted by October 12, 2022 to:

Nicole Frigault
Environmental Assessment Specialist

All comments on the draft EIS will be posted on the Canadian Impact Assessment Registry in the language in which they were received.
