National Energy Board Discussion Paper

On June 29th, the federal government released a new discussion paper on the modernization of the National Energy Board (NEB). This paper, Environmental and Regulatory Reviews, sets out proposed approaches to restore confidence in the NEB.

The paper is guided by five principles:

  1. Fair, predictable and transparent environmental assessment and regulatory processes that build on what works
  2. Participation of Indigenous peoples in all phases that advance the Government’s approach to the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and reconciliation
  3. Inclusive and meaningful public engagement
  4. Timely, evidence-based decisions reflecting the best available science and Indigenous knowledge
  5. One project-one assessment, with the scale of the assessment aligned to the potential impacts of the project

The deadline for submitting comments is August 28, 2017. Additional information on the Environmental and Regulatory Reviews can be found on the Government of Canada website.
