We are committed to meaningful engagement with Aboriginal communities about our operations and the Trans Mountain Expansion Project. We understand that Emergency Management is paramount for communities and extends this invitation in the spirit of working together to support mutual goals in the protection of health, safety and the environment.

As per BC Environmental Assessment Certificate Conditions 33 on Geographic Response Plans (GRPs), we respectfully invite you to provide input regarding the draft GRP.

Geographic Response Plan Definition 

A Geographic Response Plan is a document providing geographically specific information to assist responders in the containment and recovery of released product. There is one GRP for each of the four KMC operational districts within Canada: 

A GRP is both a planning tool and a response tool. It guides activities and decisions during the initial response to an emergency event until additional resources arrive. 

Determining the Relevant GRP 

Use the map to help you decide which GRP to examine. Depending upon the extent of your traditional territories, you may wish to review more than one GRP. 

Reviewing GRP Information 

Open the relevant GRP. The first seven pages provide further instructions to assist you in your review. These explanatory pages are green in colour to distinguish them from the rest of the GRP content. 

Sections 2.0 to 5.0 of each GRP are identical to one another. Section 1.0 (Introduction), Section 6.0 (Control Point Route Maps) and Section 7.0 (GRP Data Sheets) are unique to each GRP. You need not review all four GRPs in their entirety, only the GRP, Control Point Route Maps, and GRP Data Sheets of interest to you. The Explanatory Pages have a fuller description of both Control Point Route Maps and GRP Data Sheets. 

Review Sections 1.0 to 5.0 as you desire, then examine the maps and data sheets relevant to you, using the instructions in the Explanatory Pages. 

Please provide your feedback, comments or questions on the GRP content on or before March 23, 2018 by:

  • Email at [email protected]
  • Directly to Tyler Mitchell, the Aboriginal Analyst on the Emergency Management team, at 403.514.6759

KMC will provide you, on or before April 20, 2018, a written explanation of how comments have been considered and addressed. 

The GRP reports will be available on our website until May 18, 2018.
