Community Engagement

Since 2006, Alton Natural Gas Storage has been conducting extensive environmental studies, consulting with stakeholders, and finalizing details of the project. We are committed to meaningful and open dialogue with neighbours and communities near the project, Aboriginal peoples and other stakeholders. Receive our latest updates on Alton in our community newsletters.

Community Liaison Committee


Alton is committed to ongoing engagement with the Mi'kmaq and members of the community. A Community Liaison Committee (CLC) was established in November 2015, and is working as an advisory committee, providing practical advice and feedback on the company’s activities.

The committee meets regularly and includes representatives of local government, landowners, business and community members.

Alton follows the Nova Scotia Department of the Environment’s Guide for the Formation and Operation of a Community Liaison Committee.

Read the Terms of Reference for the Alton CLC.  Read the summary of minutes from 2017 to date.  Read minutes from 2016 and 2015 in Resources.
