MANITOBA REAPPOINTS ONE MEMBER TO SURFACE RIGHTS BOARD



The Manitoba government has reappointed June Greggor to the Surface Rights Board, Agriculture and Resource Development Minister Blaine Pedersen announced today.

“The Surface Rights Board plays an important role in our province for holders of oil and gas rights,” said Pedersen.  “We’re happy to reappoint June as she brings a wide array of experience that will greatly benefit the board.”

Greggor (Reston) served as chief administrative officer for the Rural Municipality (RM) of Pipestone from January 2000 to January 2016.  She previously served as assistant chief administrative officer for the RM of Pipestone and as a member of the Manitoba Municipal Administrators Association.  Greggor holds a certificate in Manitoba municipal administration from the University of Manitoba.

The Surface Rights Board is an independent, quasi-judicial board established under The Surface Rights Act.  The board arbitrates disputes relating to right of entry or compensation for surface rights used by holders of oil and gas rights.  It also provides mediation services between surface owners, occupants and oil and gas rights holders on a voluntary basis.

The minister noted this appointment is part of the Manitoba government’s efforts to continue to refresh the agencies, boards and commissions of the province, ensuring that Manitobans continue to be represented in these important positions by highly qualified and enthusiastic individuals.
