As Canada Nickel's local project moves ahead, the company is holding virtual meetings for people to learn more about it.
Canada Nickel is holding public engagement sessions on Friday, May 13 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Monday, May 16 from 6-8 p.m..
It's a chance for people to learn more about the Crawford Nickel Project, which is located about 40 kilometres north of Timmins and is slated to be a zero-emission operation.
The sessions are a chance to learn about preliminary details on the project design, its anticipated impacts and proposed mitigation measures.
People will be able to provide comments and feedback.
The company is getting ready to begin the federal impact assessment for the project by submitting its Initial Project Description — a key phase in the early planning — to the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada.
"The Impact Assessment is a planning and decision-making tool used by regulators, Indigenous communities, the general public, stakeholders, and proponents to emphasize the positive and resolve or mitigate the negative impacts of a proposed major project," reads a Canada Nickel news release.
