On November 29, 2016, the Government of Canada granted approval for the Trans Mountain Expansion Project (the Project). In addition, on May 19, 2016, following a 29-month review, the National Energy Board (NEB) concluded the Project is in the Canadian public interest and recommended the Federal Governor in Council approve the expansion. These approvals allow the Project to proceed with 157 conditions.

On August 30, 2018, the Federal Court of Appeal issued a decision cancelling the Order-in-Council, which had approved the Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (CPCN) for the Expansion Project. 

On September 26, 2018, the NEB announced it will hold a public hearing to carry out its reconsideration related to the Project. On February 22, 2019, the NEB announced the results of its reconsideration, and recommended the approval of the Project, subject to 156 conditions and 16 recommendations. The conditions are measures the NEB can enforce as regulator. The recommendations are measures that are beyond the scope of the NEB’s regulatory authority. Learn more here.

All official filings submitted to the NEB are available in its online document library organized into folders based on who submitted the document – National Energy Board folder, Trans Mountain Pipeline folder, Intervenors folder and Letters of Comment folder.
