On June 16, 2016, the National Energy Board (NEB) determined TransCanada’s Eastern Mainline Project Application to be complete, signaling the beginning of the formal 21 month regulatory review period. The letter advising of the completeness determination is available here.
On July 20, 2016 the NEB issued the Hearing Order for the Eastern Mainline Project. The Hearing Order provides information related to the steps and timelines that will be followed throughout the assessment of the Project’s application and public hearing process. The Hearing Order can be viewed on the NEB’s website here. As part of the hearing process, the NEB will be hosting Community Panel Sessions beginning in August 2016. For further information about the upcoming Panel Sessions, please see the Q&A document here.
The NEB will also facilitate opportunities for the general public to provide input on the Project outside of the hearing process. The feedback received will be considered by the Hearing Panel. The NEB’s project page will be updated with more information about this process as the review period proceeds. As a reminder, the Project Application is available in a number of libraries across the route. A full listing of libraries is available here.
