Open, extensive and thorough engagement along the pipeline corridor and marine corridor is an important part of the proposed Trans Mountain Expansion Project. And we’re committed to reporting back. This page outlines what we’ve heard and how different types of feedback will be incorporated into project planning and design.
Report Summarizes Recent Feedback about the Trans Mountain Expansion Project
From Edmonton to Vancouver Island, members of the Trans Mountain Expansion Project Team hosted more than three dozen public information sessions in 30 communities from October 2012 to January 2013. The goal of the sessions and online engagement opportunities was to introduce the proposed pipeline expansion project and listen to feedback.
This report provides a summary of the comments received during the recent phase of community engagement. The information sessions and discussions with stakeholders to date have brought forward many ideas, comments and concerns about the potential impacts from Trans Mountain’s proposed expansion. This feedback will be used in Trans Mountain’s project planning.
Community engagement will continue this year with a number of opportunities to participate. All comments will be considered as part of the project’s comprehensive Facilities Application to be filed to the National Energy Board (NEB) in late 2013. The NEB is the federal regulator of Canadian pipelines that cross interprovincial and international boundaries.
