Introduction to the IAMC
The Indigenous Advisory and Monitoring Committee (IAMC) brings together 13 Indigenous and six senior federal representatives to provide advice to regulators, as well as to monitor the Trans Mountain Expansion (TMX) Project and the existing pipeline. The 13 Indigenous members represent the 129 Indigenous communities and regions along the route.
Members have shared goals of both the safety and protection of environmental and Indigenous interests regarding lands and waters.
Participation by an Indigenous community does not mean that it either supports or opposes the project, nor does it change the government’s duty to consult.
It is the goal of the Indigenous Advisory and Monitoring Committee (IAMC) to form the basis of a new relationship between Indigenous communities, the government and the Canada Energy Regulator (CER - Formerly NEB) in respect of the Trans Mountain Expansion (TMX) Project, existing pipeline and associated shipping.
The IAMC provides for a collaborative, inclusive and meaningful Indigenous involvement in the review and monitoring of environmental, safety and socioeconomic issues related to the TMX Project, the existing pipeline and the related marine shipping over their life cycles.
Members of the IAMC
The Indigenous Advisory and Monitoring Committee (IAMC) includes 13 Indigenous representatives, selected from among the 129 potentially impacted communities along the Trans Mountain Expansion (TMX) pipeline corridor and marine shipping lanes, and six senior representatives from federal government departments and regulators who are involved in the TMX Project. Members have a shared goal of safety and protection of environmental and Indigenous interests.
Community funding is available through IAMC’s Contribution Program. Our objective is to increase Indigenous participation in the oversight of the TMX Project and existing pipeline and to enable Indigenous groups to be more directly involved in its outcomes.
