The Coastal GasLink pipeline project is a critical part in kick-starting Canada’s LNG industry after a historic $40 billion investment was announced by LNG Canada in 2018.
It’s a $6.2 billion investment in new construction that will create up to 2,500 high quality, well-paying jobs.
It has led the way in consulting and engaging with Indigenous communities along the route with over 15,000 interactions. Coastal GasLink has awarded $620 million in contract work to Indigenous businesses with another anticipated $400 million in additional contract and employment opportunities for Indigenous and local B.C. communities.
There is unprecedented support for this important natural gas pipeline project from local and Indigenous communities along the route. Coastal GasLink will be built to meet the strictest environmental and safety standards in the world and will deliver significant, long-term benefits for Indigenous and northern B.C. communities along its path, the province and all of Canada. This critical infrastructure project will reduce global greenhouse gas emissions and improve the air that millions breathe by providing clean, natural gas that will displace coal used to generate electricity in Asia.
It’s a big win for B.C. and a big win for Canada.
The workers and Indigenous communities relying on the benefits that come with this pipeline deserve certainty.
It’s why we’ve started a letter writing campaign directed to B.C’s provincial government asking them to stand firm behind this project. We need committed leadership from our public leaders to provide certainty in the weeks ahead.
