Trans Mountain’s Facilities Application, filed on December 16, 2013, identified a proposed pipeline corridor and in some cases proposed alternative pipeline corridors.

Since the initiation of the proposed Project in 2012, Trans Mountain has conducted ongoing engagement regarding pipeline routing with Aboriginal groups, landowners and stakeholders including local, regional and provincial governments. Following the December 2013 filing, Trans Mountain continued its work to optimize the route and reduce impacts to people and the environment through a combination of technical and environmental studies, engagement activities and on-the-ground fieldwork. In March and April 2014, routing specific workshops and open houses were completed in certain communities to seek feedback that will help us further refine the route in that area.

As a result of that feedback, and results of ongoing studies and fieldwork, there are some pipeline corridors submitted in our Application that are no longer being considered. Trans Mountain has officially documented these changes with the National Energy Board (NEB) through the regulatory process.

See the map illustrating the corridors no longer being considered and those still under consideration.
