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.
