This schedule for the Port Granby Project shows the work that will be undertaken to complete the project. Construction of the engineered aboveground mound baseliner was completed in October 2016 and remediation began in November 2016.
The funding for Phase 2 of the PHAI, as announced by Natural Resources Canada in 2012, is $1.28 billion over 10 years to complete the Port Hope and Port Granby projects.
Most of this funding is budgeted for contracts to undertake radiological investigations, construct the long-term waste management facilities, remediate waste sites and transport the waste to the new facilities. These third-party contracts result in significant economic benefits to the region in the form of sub-contracting services and supplies.
