OTTAWA, ON, May 8, 2023 /CNW/ - 2150038 Alberta Inc. (the proponent) is proposing the De Havilland Field Project, a new aviation park located about 11 kilometres west of Strathmore, Alberta.

This will help the Agency prepare a summary of issues for the proponent and decide whether the project should undergo an impact assessment.

Virtual Information Sessions

The Agency invites the public and Indigenous Peoples to attend a virtual information session via Zoom to learn more about the project, the impact assessment process, and how to submit comments on the summary of the Initial Project Description. 
Please note French information sessions will be offered upon request.

Will there be more opportunities to participate?
