The NEB provides Canadians with information on pipelines including safety and environmental issues in which the public is interested.
Expected Pipeline Information Program Outcomes…
- Pipeline information is useful and up to date.
- Pipeline maps, visualizations, social media, and other tools are used to make pipeline information accessible and interactive.
… so that Canadians have access to and use energy information for knowledge, research and decision making.
Increased amount of pipeline information

40% increase over 2016-17
Canada’s Pipeline System Portal
Increased amount of pipeline information posted on the NEB website, to track progress on the continual addition of new pipeline data and information.
- Target 10%
The NEB is committed to continually increasing the amount of pipeline information available to the public. Among the pipeline resources available on the NEB’s website are a regularly updated Safety Performance Dashboard, a list of regulated companies, and an Interactive Pipeline Map.
The Interactive Pipeline Map shows the location of NEB-regulated pipelines and all reportable incidents that have occurred on them. The incident data can be broken down by company, incident type, year and scale. Using this interactive tool, Canadians can now easily see where pipelines are located and find important related safety information.
