The National Energy Board (NEB) and the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA) will lead a Joint Review Panel http://gatewaypanel.review-examen.gc.ca/clf-nsi/hm-eng.html for Northern Gateway. The review panel will be established by the NEB and the federal Minister of Environment. Other government agencies, such as the Department of Fisheries and Oceans and Transport Canada will be involved in the review panel.
The NEB regulates the construction and operation of interprovincial pipelines to ensure their safety, security and economic efficiency. Interprovincial pipelines transporting petroleum products or natural gas require approval from the NEB before they can be built. In addition, the NEB will regulate the pipeline for its lifetime.
The NEB and CEAA-led panel will hold public hearings along the route for Aboriginal groups, stakeholders and individuals to express their views and opinions on the pipeline directly to the government agencies.
Our commitment to reduce our environmental impact where it is felt most: on the trees we remove, the natural habitat we permanently impact, and the energy we consume to power our operations
