Communication is integral to resolution. We emphasize a level of communication which encourages the successful resolution of issues before public hearings become a necessity.


Public consultation today plays a decisive role in the development of projects that affect public interest. Mandated by regulatory bodies and a prerequisite to project approvals, the success or failure of the consultation process can significantly impact the timing, cost – and ultimate viability of your project.

Facilitating Resolution

     The Hurland Services integrated approach:

  • Defines the scope and complexity of your project
  • Identifies public and regulatory expectations and issues
  • Identifies stakeholders and special interest groups
  • Develops and assists industry - First Nations Consultation Liaison
  • Fosters communication and engagement amongst the parties
  • Identifies and provides sufficient information for meaningful participant involvement
  • Assists in the education, understanding and implementation

Participant Involvement

The Regulatory requirements and expectations of the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) Directive 056 and Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) Rule 007 and Rule 020 requires the project proponent to assume responsibilities for involving the public and to be aware of circumstances or applications where the participant involvement program should meet or exceed the requirements and recommendations set out in the regulations.

Hurland Services assists in the development, implementation and documentation of Participant Involvement Programs, by discussing options, and alternatives, mitigation measures and through their co-operative efforts acquire the consensus required for the project to proceed.
