Funding is being made available to help those persons who are directly affected or have relevant information or expertise, to prepare for hearing related activities, including reviewing and commenting on the project.

A preliminary List of Issues identifying the topics that the Board may consider during the review process is available on the NEB’s website. This list may be updated after the application has been filed. To receive funding, an interested person must submit an Application to Participate and be accepted as an Intervenor in the NEB’s regulatory process for this project.
