Talk Trans Mountain

June 23, 2014 Update

Thank you for your recent and ongoing feedback about the Trans Mountain Expansion Project. We value your feedback. It has, and will continue to be used in our planning as we continue our work to optimize our proposed pipeline corridor and then ultimately our pipeline route.

In Spring 2014 we collected feedback for other communities along the pipeline route. Online feedback for these communities has concluded, however the maps and presentations continue to be available below and in our document library.

Thank you for your recent and ongoing feedback about the Trans Mountain Expansion Project. We value your feedback. It has, and will continue to be used in our planning as we continue our work to optimize our proposed pipeline corridor and then ultimately our pipeline route.

About our Community Engagement

An open, extensive and thorough engagement process on all aspects of the proposed Trans Mountain Expansion Project is underway along the pipeline corridor between Strathcona County, Alberta (near Edmonton) and Burnaby, British Columbia and the marine corridor. We are reaching out to all landowners along the pipeline and meeting with community leaders, elected officials, environmental groups and Aboriginal peoples to get their input and perspective.

Ways to Participate in the Online Engagement

This online space will offer various ways to participate and provide your thoughts and feedback on the project. Check back often for updates and sign up(External link) to receive email notifications when new discussions or feedback forms are launched.

  • A feedback tool will be available on this site for each phase of the community engagement.
  • We will also host open discussion forums, at select times during the community engagement phases. 

Community Engagement Timeline 

Community engagement began in May 2012 and will continue throughout the life of project operations, if approved.

Gathering Feedback

Feedback received from public information sessions, meetings and online will be used by the Trans Mountain Expansion Project team to help inform the following aspects of the project:

  • Identifying routing alternatives where it is not practical to follow the existing Trans Mountain right-of-way
  • Determining the scope and nature of the Environmental and Socio-Economic Assessment (ESA)
  • Identifying potential mitigation measures to reduce environmental or socio-economic impacts
  • Identifying potential local or regional benefits associated with the project 

All comments and concerns gathered as part of the stakeholder engagement program have been incorporated into the project’s Facilities Application which will be filed with the National Energy Board (NEB) in late 2013. These comments and concerns will be considered by the NEB in making its final recommendation regarding the proposed project.
