How it started

On December 16, 2013, Trans Mountain Pipeline ULC filed a Facilities Application for the Trans Mountain Expansion Project with the National Energy Board (NEB). The NEB is an independent federal agency that regulates aspects of interprovincial and international oil and gas pipelines.

The City applied to be an intervenor in the NEB’s hearing process. As intervenor, we can ask questions, present written evidence, and raise issues with the NEB. Commenters, including the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation, can make one written submission to the NEB.
