Government News Release
November 08, 2016
Today, Canada's Minister of Natural Resources, the Honourable Jim Carr, announced the creation of a five-member expert panel that will provide recommendations on modernizing Canada's federal energy regulator, the National Energy Board (NEB).
The expert panel will examine issues beyond environmental assessment, including the NEB's governance structure, role and mandate, with particular focus on enhancing the participation of the public and Indigenous peoples in regulatory reviews. The panel will hear views from Canadians in person and online. Its full mandate is outlined in the terms of reference, which reflect public comments received in June and July. The panel will also seek the specific views of Indigenous peoples as part of this process, and participant funding was made available.
