Step of the procedure

  • Decision and authorization


The Commission has decided to authorize the project under certain conditions. The decision can be consulted here (French only).


This project involves the construction of a new waste disposal site in Kangirsuk so as to provide more space and eliminate various nuisances in the community caused by the nearby burning of waste and odours from the site during certain times of the year. The new site will be located 3.5 km southeast of the community and will be accessible by an existing road. The project also automatically includes rehabilitation of the current site, which was authorized in 1985.


The waste disposal was constructed in the summer of 2014.
