National Energy Board Modernization
Print this Article | Send to Colleague
The Minister of Natural Resources has been mandated by the Prime Minister to modernize the National Energy Board (NEB) and to ensure its composition reflects regional views and has sufficient expertise in such fields as environmental science, community development, and Indigenous traditional knowledge. This review will look at issues that are specific to the NEB and fall outside the separate review of Canada's federal environmental assessment processes. It is an opportunity to strengthen the regulatory process and ensure that Canada continues to have a modern, efficient and effective regulator.
As part of this modernization process, the Minister will seek the views of Canadians on reforms to the NEB and the NEB Act. All interested Canadians will have the opportunity to provide input, including industry, non-governmental organizations, academia, the different levels of government and others as required. For more information, visit the Government of Canada website.
