Introduction to the IAMC

The Indigenous Advisory and Monitoring Committee (IAMC) brings together 13 Indigenous and six senior federal representatives to provide advice to regulators, as well as to monitor the Trans Mountain Expansion (TMX) Project and the existing pipeline. The 13 Indigenous members represent the various 129 Indigenous communities and regions along the route.

Members have shared goals of both the safety and protection of environmental and Indigenous interests regarding lands and waters.

Participation by an Indigenous community does not mean that it either supports or opposes the project, nor does it change the government’s duty to consult.

Our Work

It is the goal of the Indigenous Advisory and Monitoring Committee (IAMC) to form the basis of a new relationship between Indigenous communities, the government and the National Energy Board (NEB) in respect of the Trans Mountain Expansion (TMX) Project, existing pipeline and associated shipping.

The IAMC provides for a collaborative, inclusive and meaningful Indigenous involvement in the review and monitoring of environmental, safety and socioeconomic issues related to the TMX Project, the existing pipeline and the related marine shipping over their life cycles.


Members of the IAMC

The Indigenous Advisory and Monitoring Committee (IAMC) includes 13 Indigenous representatives, selected from among the 129 potentially impacted communities along the Trans Mountain Expansion (TMX) pipeline corridor and marine shipping lanes, and six senior representatives from federal government departments and regulators who are involved in the TMX Project. Members have a shared goal of safety and protection of environmental and Indigenous interests.


Capacity Funding

Community funding is available through IAMC’s Contribution Program. Our objective is to increase Indigenous participation in the oversight of the TMX Project and existing pipeline and to enable Indigenous groups to be more directly involved in its outcomes.

In 1905, the Mosquito Grizzly Bear’s Head Leanman First Nation in Saskatchewan lost over 5,800 hectares of land to the federal government.

Now, the community is considering a multi-million compensation offer for the land lost. | @priscil28509125

“Look, we didn’t start this dispute,” Kenney said. “It was the president, who on day one, decided to show disrespect for America’s closest friend and ally.”
