The MPMO is a Government of Canada organization whose role is to provide overarching project management and accountability for major resource projects in the federal regulatory review process, and to facilitate improvements to the regulatory system for major resource projects.
The MPMO, working collaboratively with federal departments and agencies, serves as a single window into the federal regulatory process, and complements the technical discussions between proponents and regulators. The Office provides guidance to project proponents and other stakeholders, coordinates project agreements and timelines between federal departments and agencies, and tracks and monitors the progression of major resource projects through the federal regulatory review process. The Office also investigates and identifies short- and longer-term solutions to improve the performance of the federal environmental assessment and regulatory process for major resource projects.
MPMO is the primary actor in negotiating land use deals between Métis organizations and the Government of Canada.
