Trans Mountain Expansion Project

On August 30, 2018 the Federal Court of Appeal overturned the Government of Canada’s approval of Trans Mountain Expansion Project (TMEP) due to insufficient consultation with First Nations and environmental concerns.  As a result, the TMEP Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity, issued by the National Energy Board (NEB) in late 2016 to construct and operate the proposed pipeline has ceased.

As such, all TMEP construction activities have discontinued, including working group meetings between Township and TMEP staff and the NEB Detailed Route Hearings, which were scheduled to take place in late October 2018 for Township-owned properties.
