$40-billion investment by LNG Canada shows B.C.’s future can balance economic opportunity and job creation with forward-looking environmental action that meets the Province’s climate action goals, said Premier John Horgan.

“British Columbians want a future that brings opportunities for them and their kids in the communities they call home, while living up to our responsibilities to guarantee clean air, land and water for the generations that follow,” Premier Horgan said.

“Ours is a province of unlimited potential, and the responsibility of this generation of British Columbians is to make decisions that embrace and preserve that potential. Today’s decision by LNG Canada to invest in northern B.C. demonstrates that balancing our economic, environmental and reconciliation priorities is possible. It’s a balance that will benefit the people of B.C. as we build a cleaner economy.”

This project will see construction of a natural gas pipeline from northeast B.C. to Kitimat where a new terminal will process and ship LNG to Asian markets, generating $24 billion of direct investment in B.C.

This record investment was enabled by the B.C. government’s new LNG Framework, released in March 2018.  In line with the government’s approach to LNG, projects would guarantee jobs and training opportunities for British Columbians as this  project will create up to 10,000 jobs during construction and up to 950 permanent jobs once operations are underway; respect and make partners of First Nations; and  protect B.C.’s air, land and water, including living up to the province’s climate commitments.
