Resuming the Regulatory Process – Trans Mountain Expansion Project

The NEB has decided how regulatory processes for the Trans Mountain Expansion Project (Project) will continue, including detailed route and condition compliance processes.

As set out in its decision [Filing C00593], issued to Trans Mountain, NEB decisions and orders prior to the Federal Court of Appeal decision will remain valid, unless the NEB decides that relevant circumstances have materially changed. A review of any of these decisions or orders could be done on the NEB’s own motion, due to new information from Trans Mountain, or an application for review.

A public comment period was held from June 21 – July 9, 2019, where affected parties, the company and the public were invited to provide input on the NEB’s proposed approach to resuming regulatory processes for the Project, including any proposed alternatives.

In consideration of the comments received, this decision sets out how all regulatory processes for the Project will move forward. Written reasons for the NEB’s decision will follow and will be shared publicly. The NEB will also continue to keep Canadians informed as processes resume and next steps for the Project begin.
