The Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is currently undergoing an independent third-party review. Both the EIS and the third-party review will be available, once the review is completed in the New Year. The independent review may result in further changes to the proposed ASP amendments.
A date for first reading of the proposed amendments is currently being discussed with the Town of Canmore. The date for the public hearing will be set by Council at first reading. Once the dates have been determined, we will be sure to make an announcement.

The Cascade Wildlife Corridor (shown above) is located 1 km north of the Town of Banff and links the Forty-Mile Valley, the Cascade Valley, and the Bow River Valley. As shown on the map above, a significant portion of the wildlife corridor maintains slopes of over 25 degrees. Despite the rugged terrain, the Cascade Wildlife Corridor is a well functioning wildlife corridor.
The Along Valley Wildlife Corridor and the Tipple Across Valley Wildlife Corridors adjacent to the Resort Centre in Three Sisters Mountain Village were approved in 1998. As shown in the map above, terrain within the wildlife corridors are much less steep and rugged than the terrain in the Cascade Corridor (see map posted above).
