CALGARY, April 21, 2015 /CNW/ - The National Energy Board (NEB) met yesterday with the Municipalité régionale de comté (MRC) de Vaudreuil-Soulanges, as part of our continued commitment to public engagement and pipeline safety.
Meeting with municipal organizations such as the MRC de Vaudreuil-Soulanges helps the NEB gain a more thorough understanding of the unique perspectives and challenges faced at the regional level. It also provides an opportunity to share information on the NEB mandate and role as Canada's federal energy regulator. Occurring outside of the hearing process and not specific to any project, this discussion will add to the reflections and conversations taking place through the NEB's National Engagement Initiative.
The NEB has regulatory oversight through the entire lifespan of a project – from project proposal to construction and operation and through to the end of its use. We work alongside communities with the goal of making energy infrastructure the very safest it can be. Engagement activities will continue to be an area of focus for the NEB.
The National Energy Board is an independent federal regulator of several parts of Canada's energy industry with the safety of Canadians and protection of the environment as its top priority. Its purpose is to regulate pipelines, energy development and trade in the Canadian public interest.
