TORONTO, June 18 /CNW/ - Today the Ontario Energy Board (the Board)
issued an Aboriginal Consultation Policy (the Policy) for comment. The Policy
arises from the Board's commitment to ensuring appropriate consultation is
carried out with respect to applications to construct new facilities, where
there is a potential impact on the rights or interests of Aboriginal peoples.
A copy of the proposed Policy can be viewed on the Board's website at
www.oeb.gov.on.ca or at the Board's offices during normal business hours.
Information on how to participate in the comment process is also
available on the Board's website or by calling the Consumer Relations Centre
at 416-314-2455 or toll-free at 1-877-632-2727.
