AbstractThe current state of noise requirements for federal environmental assessment purposes is discussed. The variations in provincial/territorial noise guidelines means that projects with similar potential to cause adverse effects are dealt with in widely different manners depending on the location and type of facility. Of particular concern are noise impacts within remote rural areas, particularly in the far north. A common review process and national standard for assessing noise impacts in remote areas, similar to the Alberta Energy Utilities Board (EUB) approach are adopted. The guideline would apply to the facility under review only and would be applicable to all fixed industrial activities.
