Reconsideration Process and Hearing
On September 20, 2018, the Government of Canada referred aspects of the National Energy Board’s (NEB) May 2016 recommendation report– related to the application of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012 (CEAA 2012) and the Species at Risk Act to Project-related marine shipping – back to the NEB for reconsideration. The Government has directed the NEB to complete the reconsideration process and issue its resulting report no later than February 22, 2019.
The NEB hearing order [Document 3621536], released on October 12, 2018, set out next steps and the schedule, as well as requests for information from Trans Mountain and Federal Authorities required for its reconsideration of aspects of the Trans Mountain Expansion Project pertaining to project-related marine shipping. The hearing schedule included filing deadlines starting in October and Oral Traditional Evidence presented by Indigenous groups in November/December. The hearing record is expected to close by late January, 2019.
