Break Out Session: Implementing CSA Z663-18
Implementing CSA Z663-18
Addressing the limitations and gaps in stakeholder awareness and engagement
The scope of current engagement practices dealing with land use planning in the vicinity of pipelines systems typically begins and ends with "consultation and inclusion" late in the planning process. We believe the solution lies within education on both sides of the pipeline—physically and administratively—by implementing the principles of CSA Z-663-18 and promoting "awareness through consistent and collaborative stakeholder communication early in the land use planning process." Our presentation examines case studies where awareness and early collaboration between stakeholders and pipeline operators was absent, explores the suggested formalization of roles and responsibilities for municipalities, and reviews emerging and recommended best practices in stakeholder engagement.
