Project Applications

Alberta Environment and Parks has determined that an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is required for each of the following projects, and the NRCB must now determine whether they are in the public interest. The NRCB also contributes to developing the terms of reference for the EIAs, and the EIA forms a significant part of the formal application to the Board.  


  • Town of Canmore: Cougar Creek Debris Flood Retention Structure
  • Alberta Transportation: Springbank Offstream Reservoir Project
  • AHP Development Corporation: Amisk Hydroelectric Project
  • Cyclus Power Inc.: Cavus Pump Storage Generation Project

The NRCB has now received an application from the Town of Canmore, and is currently waiting for applications from Alberta Transportation, the AHP Development Corporation, and Cyclus Power Inc. AHP forecasts submitting its application to the NRCB in 2019.
