    As the Castle Project continues through the Early Engagement phase of the provincial environmental assessment process, the BC Environmental Assessment Office (EAO) has posted the Summary of Engagement for the Project. This document summarizes what the EAO has heard to date from communities, Indigenous groups, and government agencies in Canada and the US. It also identifies topics of particular interest or concern, and outlines how Teck should address these topics in the development of the Detailed Project Description. The Summary of Engagement also lists the participating Indigenous groups and summarizes each group’s concerns and interests in relation to the Castle Project.

    As a next step in the Early Engagement phase, Teck will respond to the input included in the Summary of Engagement and will consider the individual issues in the development of the Detailed Project Description for the Castle Project.
