Upland Owner’s Consent Agreement – LNG Canada and Ministry of Forest, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations, and Rural Development (FLNRORD)

 

 

FLNRORD seeks municipal approval for LNG Canada to cross municipal land and roads (e.g., Minette Bay Park, PID 011-683-881, DL 471) for purposes of monitoring salt marshes after construction is complete.  LNG Canada needs permission use DL 471 to access the salt marsh for monitoring purposes.

 

The salt marsh site itself is regulated through a Licence of Occupation for LNGC that is approved by FLNRORD.  To confirm access over DOK land, FLNRORD requires an Upland Owner’s Consent Agreement to be approved. 

 

A previous agreement was approved in 2019 were between the DOK and LNGC, for the use of DOK land during salt marsh construction.  LNGC’s Licence of Occupation with the province was for two years starting in 2019 until construction is complete.  At the time, the DOK approved the licence for up to 15 years, which was intended to cover the anticipated monitoring period. 

 

LNGC has applied for a new Licence of Occupation with FLNRORD, that will allow monitoring over the 15 years after construction.  Given the lapse of two years during construction since the DOK agreement was signed, FLNRORD is requesting an updated agreement for the full 15 years starting in 2021.
