The National Energy Board (NEB) has launched an initiative to gather input from Indigenous people and the public to help shape both the hearing process and other engagement activities for the Energy East and Eastern Mainline projects. The comment period ends on 15 July 2017.

Activities relating to the Energy East/Eastern Mainline hearing will be led by a team of four Board Members who are independent from the hearing panel: Alain Jolicoeur, Wilma Jacknife, Damien Côté and Ronald Durelle. They will be gathering comments by meeting with Indigenous people and through a new online engagement platform.

The four Board Members hope to engage with many of the more than 200 groups of indigenous people who may be impacted by the projects. One of the key aspects of these discussions will be to identify the best ways to collect oral traditional evidence.

Relevant findings from these engagement efforts will be filed on the official record for the Hearing Panel to consider as they design the Energy East and Eastern Mainline hearing process.
