Project Information

Our stakeholder engagement efforts commenced in May 2016 and will be ongoing through the pre‐construction, construction and operation phases of the Project. The initial Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) power plant approval was received for the Project in June 2017. Since then, we have made minor amendments to our project plan, including minor equipment changes and a schedule update. As a result of these modifications, CBA is required to submit a Letter of Enquiry (LOE) to gain approval from the AUC for the changes. CBA intends to submit the LOE in Q2 2019. CBA will provide information and updates to stakeholders through newsletters.
