The AUC is committed to ensuring that Indigenous groups, whose constitutionally protected rights may be directly and adversely affected by proposed developments, have the opportunity to have their concerns heard, considered, understood and accommodated (if required).
If you feel your community may be affected by a utility application, you can register to participate through the eFiling System and fill-out the Statement of Intent to Participate (SIP) form to have your say about the project.
After creating an eFiling account or logging into an existing account, enter the proceeding ID number assigned to the application and communicated in the notice. Use the “register to participate” button within the eFiling System and follow the outlined steps.
As part of the registration process, you must fill out a statement of intent to participate (SIP). A SIP is intended to be a brief description of the rights being asserted and how those rights may be directly affected by a proposed project. It allows the AUC to decide whether to hold a hearing to address your concerns. If the AUC decides to hold a hearing based on the issues identified in a SIP, your community will have an opportunity to file formal evidence in support of those concerns.
A SIP must include the following:
A SIP must be filed through the eFiling System and becomes part of the official record of a proceeding. For assistance with the eFiling System or preparing a statement of intent to participate, please contact the AUC at 310-4282 (310-4AUC) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tips for filling out a statement of intent to participate:
The notice of application indicates that any party who has concerns with a proposed project should make a submission to the AUC by a specified date (usually between two weeks and one month depending on the project). After a statement of intent to participate is received, the AUC will consider your standing in the applications based on a two-part test (Section 9(2) of the Alberta Utilities Commission Act).
The first part of the test is legal: you must demonstrate that your right(s) or interest(s) is recognized in law.
The second part of the test is factual: you must provide information that shows the AUC’s decision on the application may directly and adversely affect your right(s) or interest(s). In other words, tell us who is using the land in question, how they are using the land and how a decision on the application or proposed project may affect that use.
