Disclosure of Transfer Payment Programs (TPP) under $5 million

The current transfer payment program that the Northern Pipeline Agency (NPA) administers is intended for engagement and consultations on the Alaska Highway Gas Pipeline (AHGP) project as it aligns with the objectives of the Northern Pipeline Act (Act). The purpose of this funding is to encourage and facilitate effective participation by Aboriginal people and others, including individuals and not-for-profit organizations, to ensure their concerns are taken into account in the federal decision-making process under the Act. This funding will enable meaningful participation where capacity would normally be an impediment for communities or organizations to participate in the NPA activities.
