Economic Impact

A2A Rail has the potential to be a central economic route, and thus a significant economic driver within North America. Consistent with the role that railways have played throughout history, the addition of this railway from Alberta to Alaska will expand important interprovincial and trans-border transportation connections between Canada and the United States.

 

The economic impact of A2A Rail will be significant to Canada’s current and emerging economies.

 

Social Impact

Consistent with A2A Rail’s approach to First Nation engagement, A2A Rail is committed to working to define and understand the social impact of the railway. Part of this process is the current and continuous dialogue with Indigenous Peoples, Tribes, and Native Corporations about the railway in the context of community goals and aspirations, and how potential impacts can be alleviated or mitigated. A2A Rail recognizes that it is important to work with Indigenous Peoples, Tribes, and Native Corporations to define and understand the intersection of this railway with communities, cultures, and societies.

 

Labour and Procurement Benefits

 

There will be multiple employment opportunities in connection with the Project. A2A Rail is committed to ensuring that Indigenous Groups benefit from the Project through procurement opportunities. A2A Rail will develop a comprehensive listing of the number and type of contracting opportunities for the railway that will be shared with the Indigenous Groups.

 

Environmental

A2A Rail will undergo a Canadian environmental regulatory process addressing Federal and Provincial/Territorial requirements and a U.S. environmental regulatory process to receive the required approvals and permits to construct the railway. Both the Canadian and U.S. processes will include development and submission of an Environmental Impact Statement and engagement with Indigenous Peoples, agencies, and parties that have an interest in this project.
