A Joint Review Panel assessing the proposed Frontier Oilsands Mine is looking for your opinion before moving forward with the project.

Organizations, Indigenous groups, and individuals are being given the chance to give their feedback on whether Teck Resources has given enough information to proceed to public hearings.

The project would be located 110 km north of Fort McMurray – near the Wood Buffalo National Park. It’s anticipated the oilsands would add around 7,000 jobs through construction and another 2,500 in their operations which is expected to see 260,000 barrels of bitumen produced per day.

One group who’s planning on fighting the project is the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation. They say Frontier could have a major impact on the wildlife and violate their Treaty rights.

The Panel will be accepting written comments until April 26.

After everything is reviewed, they will consider moving forward with the public hearings.
