As Canada’s energy regulator, the National Energy Board (NEB) has a variety of roles and responsibilities throughout the lifecycle of energy infrastructure – from adjudication of energy project applications, to the provision of energy information, engagement, and constant emphasis on safety oversight and environmental protection.

We believe good governance demands that Ministers, Parliament and the public have the necessary information to properly challenge and assess our overall performance.

The NEB’s Departmental Results Framework allows us to clearly and credibly demonstrate the work we undertake on behalf of Canadians. It states our Core Responsibilities, the programs that support them, the outcomes we expect to achieve and the results indicators we will use to measure our performance.

Core Responsibility - Energy Adjudication

Energy adjudication processes are fair, timely, transparent and accessible.


  • Infrastructure, Tolls and Export Applications
  • Participant Funding

Core Responsibility - Safety and Environment Oversight

Harm to people or the environment, throughout the lifecycle of energy-related activities, is prevented.


  • Company Performance
  • Management System and Industry Performance
  • Emergency Management
  • Regulatory Framework

Core Responsibility - Energy Information

Canadians access and use energy information for knowledge, research or decision-making, access to community-specific NEB-regulated infrastructure information, and opportunities to collaborate and provide feedback on National Energy Board information products.


  • Energy System Information
  • Pipeline Information

The Departmental Results Framework describes to the public exactly what we are doing to fulfill our mandate. Our Core Responsibilities provide the foundation for all our actions.

Core Responsibility - Engagement

Stakeholders and Indigenous Peoples share their perspectives and provide feedback regarding the National Energy Board mandate and role. NEB engagement activities with stakeholders and Indigenous Peoples are meaningful.
