On June 20, 2018 Bill C-69, An Act to enact the Impact Assessment Act and the Canadian Energy Regulator Act, to amend the Navigation Protection Act and to make consequential amendments to other Acts, passed Third Reading in the House of Commons and was referred to the Senate for First Reading. Second Reading debate has commenced in the Upper Chamber and will most likely be referred to the Energy, Environment and Natural Resources Committee for review.
