Agreement and Project Listing

On June 21, 2010, the Environmental Assessment Office (EAO) and the National Energy Board (NEB) entered into an agreement (NEB-EAO Agreement) which states the EAO will accept the NEB's environmental assessment of a proposed project (that otherwise would have to be reviewed under BC's Environmental Assessment Act) as an equivalent assessment, and that the proposed project may proceed without a provincial environmental assessment certificate.
