Will the impact on wildlife be studied?

Yes. An Environmental Impact Study (EIS) has been conducted to identify potential impacts to wildlife and fish habitat. As part of the EIS, development of the property must demonstrate no negative impact to site natural heritage features and ecological function. The siting evaluation considered effects of facility development on species of special concern, threatened, and endangered (including aquatic species). A preliminary review of historical records indicated low net effects on Species at Risk (SAR) for 2976 Horseshoe Valley Road West. This was further confirmed with a preliminary assessment of natural heritage features, undertaken in early 2016. Additional information can be found in the Scoped Environmental Impact Study (EIS) dated November 16, 2016.
