Canada Bulk Transmission Biological Resource Assessment(12-CAN)
In Canada, a bulk transmission developer may need an authorization or permit from the Environment and Climate Change Canada (Department), as well as local government, to identify and mitigate any activities associated with a project that may disturb, harm or kill migratory birds, nests or eggs. A bulk transmission developer may also need a Species at Risk Act Permit from either Parks Canada Agency, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, and/or Environment and Climate Change Canada for projects that may "kill, harm, harass, capture or take an individual of a wildlife species that is listed as an extirpated species, an endangered species or a threatened species." S.C. 2002, c. 29, ss. 32(1), 73(1).
