CEPA and our members believe in listening to stakeholders across Canada and gaining insights into issues that matter to Canadians. Because our members reach such a broad and inclusive geography, we feel it’s important to listen to a broad and inclusive group of stakeholders. That’s why we hold Pipeline Dialogue events.
Pipeline Dialogue events are a platform for CEPA and interested parties to engage openly to build mutual understanding of perspectives and expectations. These diverse perspectives are important to us, and help inform the work that we do.
Each Pipeline Dialogue event brings together a group of people to share their experiences, thoughts and concerns around topics important to CEPA and our members. In these dialogues, we look to include representatives from the following groups:
Pipeline Dialogues represent an evolution in listening to our stakeholders. In 2014, the External Advisory Panel (EAP) was established to provide CEPA and Integrity First with insights from key stakeholders that inform our activities as an association.
The panel was active until 2017, and included representatives from a variety of community groups including industry experts, Indigenous Peoples, academia and landowner groups, among others.
The EAP provided CEPA with advice from across its members’ areas of expertise, and played an important role in shaping the evolution of Integrity First. Now, through the Pipeline Dialogue events, CEPA continues to listen to stakeholders.
