The Canada Energy Regulator, Trans Mountain and the Indigenous Advisory and Monitoring Committee for the Trans Mountain Expansion Project and Existing Pipeline have reached a joint agreement on Indigenous monitoring.

Earlier this year, leaders from all three organizations endorsed the initiative, which is aimed at identifying opportunities to improve TMC’s and the IAMC-TMX’s respective Indigenous monitoring programs for the project.

“This agreement represents how we are fundamentally transforming the way the CER works to advance reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples,” said CER Acting-CEO Sandy Lapointe, in a news release. “Collaborating with the IAMC-TMX and Trans Mountain is helping us develop best practices in Indigenous monitoring and will inform how we approach and expand Indigenous inclusion in oversight for all future projects.”

The announcement comes a week after the Supreme Court of Canada declined to hear a case from the Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations that could have halted the Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion for a second time.
