Environmental and Social Impact Review Committee (COMEX)

The Environmental and Social Impact Review Committee (Review Committee or COMEX) is an independent body composed of members appointed by the governments of Quebec and the Cree Nation, which is responsible for the assessment and review of the social and environmental impacts of projects located south of the 55th parallel in the territory governed by the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement (JBNQA). The name ‘Review Committee’ could be translated into the Cree language as ‘ehowiiyeitikaw cegoyiw ehwiioushtaganiwiit’ (the ones who make the decision about building something) or ‘tekosh ekaniwapitikaw cegoyiw ehwiioushtaganiwiit’ (the ones who examine the plan to build something).
