The Hearing Process

In the case of large facilities application, CER's work begins when a company files a Pre-Application Project Description. Applicants (who plan to file applications) can request a pre-application meeting with our staff to gain a better understanding of the application processes and regulatory requirements. There is also a Filing Manual and Filing Manual Flowchart on our website to help interested parties understand the application process.

The CER works with the federal Major Projects Management Office to coordinate the regulatory review process. We also engage the public, including Aboriginal groups, who may be impacted by the project. CER Process Advisors are available to support participants in hearing processes, and to go to communities in some cases to provide information on the process and the Participant Funding Program.
