The LNG Canada project is the largest private sector investment project in Canada’s history. And, as our research found, its impact on Indigenous communities is significant.
LNG project development in B.C. is benefiting Indigenous communities and peoples. And sharing in the opportunities that arise from further LNG development will increase Indigenous economic prosperity and continue to close the gaps between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in Canada.
LNG project development can help advance reconciliation.
LNG proponents are establishing meaningful, respectful, and mutually beneficial relationships, and providing opportunities that address community interests.
Indigenous peoples are using the financial benefits to pursue social goals, including preserving languages, promoting cultural heritage, and protecting the environment.
