The National Energy Board's Participation Framework: Implementing Changes Resulting from the Jobs, Growth and Long-term Prosperity Act
Keywords:Energy Law, Petroleum Law
AbstractAs a result of the enactment of the Jobs, Growth and Long-term Prosperity Act, the National Energy Board was required to change its processes relating to standing and level of participation. The Board developed and implemented a Participation Framework to provide clear and consistent guidance to the public on how the Board implemented the changes in the amending legislation. This article delineates the evolution of the Board’s approach to participation and discusses how the Board has responded to larger and increasingly complex projects as it carries out its mandate in the Canadian public interest.
