The Environmental Management Plan (EMP) was developed for the construction phase of the Project and has been adjusted to reflect the current Operational state. It encompassed all environmental
commitments and regulatory requirements made for the Maritime Link and
described how they were managed. This included mitigation best practices (MBPs), commitments made during the EA process and conditions
of EA release, as well as subsequent requirements of federal, provincial and/or
municipal permitting processes such as authorizations, approvals, permits and certificates.
