NEB Chair’s Cross-Canada Engagement continues in New Brunswick

FREDERICTON - National Energy Board (NEB) Chair, Peter Watson, continues his cross-Canada engagement initiative in New Brunswick today. The national initiative kicked off on Monday, Nova Scotia, where the NEB Chair met with individuals and groups regarding pipeline safety and environmental protection programs.

While in New Brunswick, the NEB Chair will continue to meet with individuals and groups as he fulfills his commitment to the engagement initiative.

The NEB Chair, Board Members and staff will continue to hear from Canadians in Atlantic Canada, with further stops in New Brunswick, Newfoundland & Labrador, and Prince Edward Island.

The NEB will visit every province and the North to meet directly with interested groups, including municipal and provincial leaders and staff, First Nations organizations, environmental groups, first responders and academics, as well as professional and industry organizations to discuss pipeline safety and environmental protection.

In addition to meeting with Canadians from coast to coast to coast, the NEB’s engagement initiative includes an online discussion forum, which is open to anyone who wants to share their views about pipeline safety and environmental protection. The discussion forum can be accessed from the NEB’s website at www.neb.soapboxhq.com/welcome/?l=en. Anyone wishing to provide comments or feedback on this initiative can email: pipelinesafety@neb-one.gc.ca.

The National Energy Board is an independent federal regulator of several parts of Canada's energy industry with the safety of Canadians and protection of the environment as its top priority. Its purpose is to regulate pipelines, energy development and trade in the Canadian public interest. For more information on the NEB and its mandate, please visit www.neb-one.gc.ca.
