Canada creates NEB modernization panel

A five-member panel in Canada is tasked with delivering a report by the end of March on modernizing the National Energy Board (OGJ Online, Sept. 20, 2016).

The naming of panel members follows an announcement in June of comprehensive reviews of Canada’s environmental assessment and regulatory processes.

The expert panel will examine issues beyond environmental assessment, including NEB’s governance structure, role, and mandate, with particular focus on enhancing public participation in regulatory reviews. The panel will hear views from Canadians in person and online.

Panel members’ areas of expertise include policy, energy, business, environment, scientific, regional, and indigenous.
