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.

More than 24,000 Indigenous people across B.C. have been immunized with the COVID-19 vaccine. But the rollout is not without its setbacks. @AngelaSterritt got a first-hand look at one First Nations community that recently welcomed the vaccine.

Saskatchewan has 2 additional deaths and 121 new COVID-19 cases. That's the fewest number of new daily cases in a week; the 7-day average is 154. On the vaccination front, 81,597 people (6.9% of the population) have received at least 1 dose. https://newsinteractives.cbc.ca/coronavirustracker/

The AZ/CoviShield vaccine is now in 🇨🇦. The first tranche of 500k doses arrived this morning from @SerumInstIndia with 1.5 million more doses to follow. Thank you to all whose hard work made this happen. We look forward to future collaboration. 🙏🏽

Ottawa boasts about its "feminist foreign policy", appoints an "ambassador for women, peace and security," & Afghan women are supposed to be a priority - but now that their rights are on the table in the Taliban talks, Canada is nowhere. https://nationalpost.com/opinion/terry-glavin-canada-stands-by-gawping-while-a-travesty-unfolds-in-afghanistan
