Background: To effectively manage the region’s garbage remaining after recycling, Metro Vancouver determined additional waste-to-energy capacity to be the best solution. The new project will undergo a comprehensive Environmental Assessment. Cornerstone is currently planning and implementing an extensive engagement and consultation program to support the project and related regulatory processes.
Our Solution: Cornerstone helped to design a phased, iterative approach to engagement and consultation, allowing for the appropriate levels of notification and involvement for specific audiences as the development process proceeds. Consultation has been undertaken on potential site evaluation criteria and Cornerstone has facilitated meetings between Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley Regional District.
Results: The potential site identification phase is nearly complete. Cornerstone is helping to plan and implement a wide range of engagement and consultation activities for all potentially impacted audiences.
