Who is the Canada Energy Regulator?
The Canada Energy Regulator (CER) works to keep energy moving safely across the country. We review energy development projects, and share energy information that matters, all while enforcing some of the strictest safety and environmental standards in the world. We reflect the values of Canadians and Indigenous Peoples in everything we do. To find out how the CER is working for you visit us online or connect on social media

Enbridge – Line 3 Replacement Program
The Line 3 Replacement Program (Line 3) involves construction of a new crude oil pipeline, located between Hardisty, Alberta and Gretna, Manitoba. After construction is complete, the existing Line 3 will be decommissioned. Additionally, it includes installation of associated infrastructure, including valves, pump stations and storage tanks. For more information, visit the Enbridge Pipelines Inc. – Line 3 Replacement Program.
What is the Line 3 Indigenous Advisory and Monitoring Committee (IAMC)?
The Line 3 IAMC was established in October 2017 and is composed of 16 Indigenous members, one representative from Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) and one representative from the CER. This IAMC is paving the way for an enhanced relationship between Indigenous Nations along the Line 3 route, the Government of Canada and the CER. The Committee provides the opportunity for Indigenous Nations to participate meaningfully in oversight activities that occur along the pipeline corridor during pipeline construction and operations. Indigenous Monitors now accompany CER Inspection Officers in the field and provide advice from an Indigenous perspective on the environmental, safety and socio-economic aspects of the project. As of January 2019, there have been 24 inspections with Indigenous Monitors.
