Budget 2018 did provide for up to $259 million of additional resources over five years for the agency to transition to the new impact assessment agency of Canada to enhance indigenous outreach and engagement, to effect the early planning aspects of the bill, and to work with proponents, provinces, indigenous groups, and other interested parties to build greater certainty up front of the process. Those monies will flow over the period of five years, as laid out in the budget. The first part of that will come to the agency later in the year, through supplementary estimates.
