Phase IV engagement

What is Phase 4?

The Government of Canada committed to maintaining and strengthening relationships with Indigenous communities in the post-decision period of the Trans Mountain Expansion (TMX) project. Phase 4 will continue to build on the two-way, meaningful dialogue that was established in Phase III to help communities navigate initiatives related to Crown commitments, accommodation measures, or any other project-related activities.

A single-window approach

With the government’s decision to approve the project on June 18, 2019, Canada is establishing the Phase 4 Partnership Office — a focal point to partner and work with Indigenous communities and deliver on commitments, including accommodations measures and the government’s response to the Canada Energy Regulator’s (CER) 16 recommendations.

With this Office in place, the government and Indigenous communities will be well placed to work together efficiently, and focus on results to the benefit of communities, the environment, and the economy.

The TMX website homepage will be updated to include new sections dedicated to tracking the government’s Phase 4 actions and aggregate other activities related to the project so that Canadians have a “one-stop-shop” to get informed on the project.

The kinds of information that will be shared include updates from the government on:

How is this different?

In the lead up to the Government of Canada’s decision on the Trans Mountain Expansion (TMX) Project, Indigenous communities expressed that the government should consider a single window approach for Phase 4 engagement should the project be approved.

This approach is a whole of government effort that responds to this request. It will put the needs of communities first, increase transparency and access to information, as well as share important information about the project as it advances.
