Regulatory Coordination

Many regulatory boards and agencies need to review plans for the Mackenzie Gas Project. The four phases of a coordination process proposed by the responsible regulatory agencies are:

  • Preparation
  • Preliminary information package and applications
  • Joint environmental impact assessment panel hearings coordinated with regulatory hearings
  • Completion of regulatory processes

To make this process easier, these groups have created a Cooperation Plan. They have agreed to work together to make the environmental assessment and regulatory processes for the Project more efficient and effective.
A copy of the Cooperation Plan can be obtained by contacting the National Energy Board.

The major regulators are:

National Energy Board (NEB)

Mackenzie Valley Environmental Impact Review Board (MVEIRB)

Sahtu Land and Water Board

Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency

Inuvialuit Land Administration

Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Board

Gwich'in Land and Water Board

Inuvialuit Settlement Regional Joint Secretariat Environmental Impact Screening Committee

Government of the Northwest Territories Resources, Wildlife and Economic Development (RWED)
