COVID-19 Update #2: Summary of Impacts to Operations, Support for First Nation and Company Partners

April 3, 2020 (update to and replaces original March 17, 2020 notice)

We recognize the COVID-19 pandemic is having far-reaching impacts to you, your families, colleagues, your First Nation community, your company, and to Canadians overall. This update provides a summary of where we are at with the management of oil and gas on First Nation reserve lands under the implementation of our Business Continuity Plan.

Indian Oil and Gas Canada (IOGC) is continuing to accept and process payments from companies to First Nations as an essential service. These payments are crucial to our First Nation partners, even more so now. IOGC would like to thank companies that have submitted their payments on time.

IOGC staff continue to face telework challenges, and our partners should expect continued delays for service response and delivery on non-essential services. We ask for your patience and flexibility during this period.

Until further notice, IOGC’s current operational changes include:

Expectations and Support For Companies

Support and Information for First Nations

IOGC continues to monitor information from public health authorities and federal partners to ensure we are consistent with their guidance and directives. Please continue to check IOGC’s website for updates or changes.

Keep safe.
