In the social acceptability guidelines published by the Ministère de l’Énergie et des Ressources naturelles (MERN), one of the action proposed to respond to demands from the public is to publish information on major projects. The MERN will do this by preparing, among other things, a series of summary documents presenting information on major public land, energy and mineral resource development projects. The purpose of this is to:
- make available updated information on major projects, taken from public sources, to ensure that local actors have a better grasp of the issues and are able to take part in a more informed way in the public participation and project monitoring processes;
- bring together all relevant ministerial information on major projects in a single, easily consulted location.
An interactive map is provided to show where the projects are located and how they will be implemented in the host area. It also shows the developments proposed by the promoters.
Please click on the links below for general information on documented major projects and access to the interactive map. More detailed information is available in printable summary documents. Other projects will be added to the list in the coming months.
