Public Comment Period: Garibaldi At Squamish

The EAO held an open house to advise the public on changes and updates information.  AWARE was there – please find below the handouts that were made publicly available at that session.


Now is your chance to ensure that Sea-to-Sky community values and public goals are considered in project planning and decision-making.


Share your thoughts on the Garibaldi at Squamish Project.

What is this about?

Garibaldi at Squamish Inc. (Proponent) is proposing to construct and operate an all-seasons destination ski resort at Brohm Ridge near Squamish, BC. The Garibaldi at Squamish Project (proposed Project) would have 23 ski lifts, 124 developed ski trails, two golf courses and both private and commercial accommodations.

The proposed Project is subject to review under British Columbia’s Environmental Assessment Act.

The Proponent must obtain an environmental assessment certificate before any work can be undertaken on the proposed Project. On June 10, 2010, the Minister of Environment and the Minister of Tourism, Culture and the Arts made a decision to require additional information from the Proponent after considering the environmental assessment review led by BC’s Environmental Assessment Office (EAO).

At this stage of the process, the EAO is inviting comments on the Supplemental Application. Comments will be accepted during a 45-day period between May 8 and June 22, 2015. All written comments received by online form, fax or mail related to the Supplemental Application will be accepted.

How can my contribution make a difference?

The intention of seeking public comments is to ensure that potential effects associated with the additional information in the Supplemental Application are identified for consideration as part of the assessment process.
