Environmental Observatory for the Bay of Sept-Îles


Cégep de Sept-Îles, the City of Sept-Îles, Corporation de protection de l’environnement de Sept-Îles, Développement économique Sept-Îles, and the Port of Sept-Îles on August 26, 2013, announced the creation of an environmental observatory for the Bay of Sept-Îles that will be headed by Institut nordique de recherche en environnement et en santé au travail (INREST).

In addition to providing an environmental overview, this project seeks to:

  • Update and consolidate data and metrics on the bay’s environment;
  • Produce an annual monitoring report drawing on data processed by INREST;
  • Predict the bay’s capacity to accommodate acceptable projects that are safe for people and the environment;
  • Help existing businesses improve their environmental performance, as warranted;
  • Measure the results of conservation and environmental improvement efforts in the Bay of Sept-Îles.
