Why to engage?

Why it is important that you engage?

The NEB as the duty to operate in the Canadian public interest. Operating in the public interest means listening and responding to the interests of all Canadians including Indigenous peoples. Therefore, it is essential that the NEB engages with a wide variety of external groups as part of its ongoing oversight of energy facilities and regulated activities. This active engagement helps the NEB to:

  • Understand the Canadian public interest, including the diverse perspectives of Canadians;

  • Collaborate on the most effective means to ensure that energy facilities are safe for the public, workers and the environment;

  • Proactively identify and respond to emerging issues; and

  • Effectively regulate facilities under the NEB’s jurisdiction over their lifecycle.
