"Seeking understanding of Aboriginal peoples' place in today's society and ultimately for the future means understanding the history that has brought us here. It is not the history that solely acknowledges the Euro-Canadian perspective that will bring this understanding but it is an holistic approach that also respects the Aboriginal world view. This strategy draws on "ways of knowing" that honor written and oral traditions and is blended with a spiritual element that promotes a full appreciation for both approaches.
"This study examines employment segregation by gender and by Aboriginal ancestry within Canada's forest sector in 2001. Results show that while gender segregation was principally by occupation, segregation by Aboriginal ancestry was principally by industry sub-sector. White women were over represented in clerical occupations and Aboriginal men were over represented in woods based industries. Patterns of employment for Aboriginal women differed from those of both Aboriginal men and white women."
The Metal Mining Effluent Regulations under the Fisheries Act direct metal mines to conduct environmental effects monitoring (EEM) as a condition governing the authority to deposit effluent. This technical guidance document for EEM studies presents the most applicable generic designs currently available without being an exhaustive list of methodologies. This technical guidance document replaces the 2002 version.
This Energy Market Assessment (EMA), entitled Short-term Outlook for Canadian Crude Oil to 2006, was undertaken to expand the effectiveness of the Board’s monitoring activities by providing short-term analysis on recent developments and emerging issues in the Canadian oil industry. The EMA presents the NEB’s 18-month outlook on prices, supply and markets for Canadian crude oil and petroleum products. Where foreseen opportunities and challenges exist, these are identified.
This Energy Market Assessment (EMA), entitled The Maritimes Natural Gas Market: An Overview and Assessment, examines the development and functioning of the Maritimes natural gas market and provides an overview of the issues in this market. During the preparation of this report, a series of meetings and discussions were conducted with a cross-section of the natural gas industry, including producers, gas marketers, pipeline company representatives, local distribution companies, end-users, industry associations and government agencies.
Since 2002, the National Energy Board has enhanced its monitoring of the emerging natural gas market in the Maritimes. It began by issuing a report in June 2003 on the state of the market entitled The Maritimes Natural Gas Market, An Overview and Assessment. The Board also began public reporting of monthly prices for exports at the St. Stephen location and moved to provide additional information on the wholesale price of gas.
The purpose of this report is to identify the significant changes that have occurred since 1991 in natural gas long-term contracts (i.e. having an initial term of five years or longer), including both new contracts executed since 1991 as well as the changes that have been made to the long-term contracts that were in effect in 1991 in response to these events.
This Energy Market Assessment (EMA), entitled Canadian Natural Gas Market Dynamics and Pricing, identifies the factors that affect natural gas prices and describes the current functioning of regional markets in Canada.
This Energy Market Assessment (EMA), entitled Canadian Natural Gas Market Dynamics and Pricing: An Update, discusses natural gas price formation and describes the current functioning of regional gas markets in Canada.
This Energy Market Assessment (EMA) report examines the geological potential for conventional natural gas resources and presents an estimate of those resources for the country. The main objective of this report is to provide the current status of the NEB estimates and to provide the groundwork for future work through partnerships with other provincial, territorial or federal agencies.
