In the Community

LNG Canada is committed to ensuring that benefits from our project flows to local communities

We believe that by working together and understanding what is important to the community, we can design, build and operate a project that considers community interests, and provides benefits to north coast communities, as well as all British Columbians.

The community has emphasized the importance of LNG Canada providing local economic opportunities both through direct employment, contracting and purchasing of goods and services from local companies. We are committed to a “hire local first” approach and will work to ensure local residents have opportunities to become qualified to benefit from the B.C. LNG industry.

The benefits of the LNG Canada project will go beyond jobs. The project will deliver tax revenue to the local community that can be used to support social projects, recreational facilities, and ensure local infrastructure is well maintained. All economic activity—whether directly or indirectly tied to the project—can help drive positive economic growth throughout British Columbia and across Canada.

Social investment

LNG Canada defines Social Investment as making strategic investments in the social needs and infrastructure of the communities in which we operate. We understand the value of BC's communities, which is why we're always excited to give back and ensure their growth and sustainability for all residents.

Applications for 2020 are now open. The pillars of our social investment program are Workforce & Enterprise, Environment, Community Wellness and Education.

Our commitment to the community

Working together with the community, LNG Canada developed a Community Charter that outlines the commitments our company will meet to ensure we remain a valued member of the community throughout the lifetime of our project.

Local input: our Community Advisory Group

LNG Canada is temporarily pausing the Community Advisory Group (CAG) that has been in place since 2014. We thank the individuals that participated and provided important feedback and input to LNG Canada. We anticipate the CAG will start up again as the Project gets closer to Start-Up and Operations.

During construction, LNG Canada will shift focus towards management of direct Project impacts on Community Level Infrastructure and Services in Kitimat and the surrounding area through a Social Management Roundtable (SMR). The SMR brings together our EPC contractor JGC Fluor (JFJV) and a cross section of Federal, Provincial and Regional agencies, Municipal government, Community based organizations, and Indigenous communities to review and discuss mitigation strategies, monitoring data and feedback for 7 key areas:

1) Housing & Accommodation;

2) Road and Air Traffic;

3) Emergency Response;

4) Community Health;

5) Community Amenities;

6) Utilities; and

7) Education

During construction JFJV will share information and accept feedback through a Project website, Phone line, Facebook page and drop in Project Resource Centre in Kitimat. LNG Canada will also continue to engage with the community through focus groups, open houses and community events.
