IAMC-TMX Indigenous Caucus, Canada Energy Regulator and Trans Mountain Endorse Field Discussion Process

November 22, 2022 – Vancouver, BC – The IAMC-TMX Indigenous Caucus, Canada Energy Regulator (CER) and Trans Mountain have co-developed and endorsed the Terms of Reference (ToR) for a Field Discussion Process. The process outlines principles of engagement and resolution, and issues to be addressed. This was one of the key initiatives co-developed by the CER, Trans Mountain and the IAMC-TMX to meaningfully improve the system and practice of Indigenous monitoring.

The IAMC-TMX Secretariat will facilitate the Field Discussion Process, subject to the direction of other Parties. This process is intended to address specific issues that arise in the field, rather than broader policy matters and is not to be triggered unnecessarily. Parties are expected to make sufficient attempts to resolve issues early and informally before elevating issues to the Field Discussion Process.

“This forward-looking document is an historic agreement and sets a framework for Indigenous involvement in future projects. Greater Indigenous participation in the regulatory space is something that our Caucus strives to achieve, and is a valuable outcome for our communities,” said Raymond Cardinal, Indigenous Co-Chair of the IAMC-TMX.

“The CER is proud to have played a role in the development of this process. It’s a great example of how we’re co-developing approaches, creating a space for collaborative discussions to resolve issues, and enabling Indigenous stewardship and participation into our regulatory oversight.” said Gitane De Silva, CEO, CER.

“We are proud to be involved in this agreement involving Indigenous groups across our corridor. It reflects our meaningful engagement on issues that are important for communities during construction,” said Rob Van Walleghem, Executive Vice-President Indigenous Affairs of Trans Mountain.
