Work productively with landowners to limit land-use impacts and improve access to pipeline rights-of-way.

Pipelines cross the land of thousands of Canadians. These landowners are important partners in delivering the energy you need, and CEPA members hold them in the highest regard. These relationships begin with consultation based on mutual respect, and often last for generations.

Planned Commitments

The CEPA Integrity First® guidance document in development for Land Use and Access will build on the principles of CEPA’s Code of Conduct for Land Representatives/Agents:

  • Build positive, lasting relationships based on mutual respect and trust.
  • Undertake interactions with landowners and other stakeholders with honesty, integrity and courtesy at all times.
  • Listen, seek to understand and negotiate in good faith. Make every effort to reach agreement with landowners and other stakeholders in an honest, fair and reasonable fashion.
  • Provide landowners and other stakeholders with timely and factual information on all aspects of the project.
  • Preserve the confidentiality of conversations and the terms of agreements with landowners and other stakeholders.
  • Ensure landowners and other stakeholders understand the process and importance of timing for projects.
  • Respond to landowner and other stakeholder concerns in a timely and respectful manner.
  • Ensure employees and representatives interact with landowners and other stakeholders in accordance with this Code of Conduct.
