The Indigenous Advisory and Monitoring Committee for the Trans Mountain Expansion (IAMC-TMX) is intended to form the basis of a new relationship between Indigenous communities, the Government of Canada and the National Energy Board.
IAMC-TMX is implementing an Indigenous Monitoring Program, in which IAMC-TMX Indigenous Monitors will participate in inspections, site visits, and compliance verification of the Trans Mountain Expansion Project, should it proceed, with federal regulators including the National Energy Board and Fisheries and Oceans Canada.
At this time, the Committee is seeking expressions of interest from eligible communities or organizations interested in partnering with the Committee to continue to develop and deliver the Indigenous Monitoring Program and employ Indigenous Monitors.
This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a ground-breaking initiative that is creating the foundations of long-term partnerships between Indigenous communities and federal regulators. The Committee is looking for strategic and creative partners to build on the framework developed and lessons learned through the Committee’s pilot project, in which Indigenous Monitors participated with regulators in inspections and emergency management activities from December 2017 to November 2018.
The Committee intends to partner with several of the 129 Indigenous communities potentially impacted by Trans Mountain activities (as listed in Appendix A of IAMC-TMX Terms of Reference) or their affiliated organizations, corporations, and partnerships.
If your community or organization is interested in partnering with the Committee on the IAMC-TMX Indigenous Monitoring Program, please review the attached full call document, complete the attached Expression of Interest Form, and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 13, 2019, 11:59 pm PST.
Please contact us at any time to discuss the IAMC-TMX Indigenous Monitoring Program, how the Committee can support your community or organization’s priorities through the IAMC-TMX Capacity Funding Program, or the Committee’s activities.
