An Extensive Information and Consultation Process

We commit to completing this natural gas project diligently and transparently, while providing fact-based communications of the project characteristics.

We will carry out a robust and constructive information and consultation process, as we believe it is important to involve local communities at various levels of the project.

 

We will strive to minimize impacts through the following approach:

  • Inform and listen to community stakeholders in order to improve the project
  • Involve local communities so they can validate the route and impacts
  • Develop the project based on feedback received and changes made to the project
  • Integrate, in the environmental and social impact assessment, the concerns and comments expressed
Five-Part Process

 

  1. Individual meetings with certain key stakeholders
    • Late 2018
    • Objectives: Present the project and the study corridor, validate the information and consultation process, and identify other stakeholders to be consulted
  2. Group meetings with all identified stakeholders
  3. Public information and consultation sessions
    • Early 2019
    • Objectives: Involve interested residents from the municipalities located in the corridor to:
      • Present the project components
      • Identify the impacts and opportunities related to the corridor
