Departmental Results Framework

“The NEB’s Departmental Results Framework will ensure that everyone in our organization delivers on our commitment to regulatory excellence, on behalf of Canadians.”

Peter Watson
Chair/CEO of the National Energy Board

Raison d’être - The National Energy Board is an independent federal regulator of several parts of Canada’s energy industry. It regulates pipelines, energy development and trade in the public interest with safety as its primary concern.

As Canada’s energy regulator, the 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. This is an essential component of public confidence in the regulatory system.

In support of this, the NEB has updated our Departmental Results Framework. The Framework allows us to clearly and credibly demonstrate the work we undertake on behalf of Canadians. It is the frame through which we will ensure our commitment to regulatory excellence will be observed at all times, everywhere in our organization.
