National Energy Board Modernization: Expert Panel Consultations

The Minister of Natural Resources has been mandated by the Prime Minister to modernize the National Energy Board (NEB) and to ensure that its composition reflects regional views and has sufficient expertise in such fields as environmental science, community development and indigenous traditional knowledge.  An expert panel has been established to consult with interested parties as part of the review.

UBCM is developing a submission on behalf of BC local governments.  Our submission will be based on previous resolutions and policy positions that have been adopted by the membership related to the NEB.  We encourage local governments interested in making their specific interests known to the NEB expert panel to participate and to copy Josh van Loon, Senior Policy Analyst at UBCM.

The deadline for submissions is March 31, 2017.
