Regional Assessment of Offshore Oil and Gas Exploratory Drilling East of Newfoundland and Labrador

This public registry page has been created by the C-NLOPB for the posting of documents related to the Regional Assessment of Offshore Oil and Gas Exploratory Drilling East of Newfoundland and Labrador.

This is the first regional assessment conducted under the Impact Assessment Act, 2019 or the former legislation, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012. The Regional Assessment will improve the efficiency of the environmental assessment process as it applies to oil and gas exploration drilling while at the same time ensuring the highest standards of environmental protection continue to be applied and maintained.

A final report for the Regional Assessment was submitted to the Minister of Environment and Climate Change Canada on February 29, 2020. The Regional Assessment focussed on the effects of existing and anticipated offshore oil and gas exploratory drilling in the offshore area east of Newfoundland and Labrador. The Regional Assessment builds upon the experience and knowledge gained in assessing previous projects, reduces duplication in processes and information and will result in more efficient project reviews for exploration projects.

The Impact Assessment Agency of Canada (IAAC) page is the primary point for locating documents relating to the completed Regional Assessment and future updates. In the event of discrepancies between postings on the C-NLOPB Public Registry and the IAAC site, the IAAC site should be considered accurate. The IAAC site may be found here:
