Participation & Lands

The purpose of the NEB is to regulate pipelines, energy development and trade in the Canadian public interest. With approximately 73,000 kilometers of pipelines and about 1,400 kilometers of power lines under its regulations, the NEB’s regulations, standards and programs work to make our pipeline transportation systems and power lines safe, secure, accessible, competitive and environmentally responsible.

The NEB wants to hear from people who are directly affected by a project to assist them in making a decision about a company's proposal to build a new facility or abandon an existing facility. The NEB may also hear from you if you have expert information that would help the NEB to assess the proposed project. Processes are designed so that decision makers are presented with the range of views required to make fully-informed decisions in the Canadian public interest.
