Engagement process with Indigenous groups on Trans Mountain Expansion Project

During Phase III consultations on the Trans Mountain Expansion Project many Indigenous groups expressed interest in opportunities for greater economic participation in the project. With the project now approved, the government is launching an engagement process over summer 2019 that will focus on information gathering and be led by the Department of Finance Canada.
