TransCanada has three roles in the building of the Coastal GasLink pipeline:
- Plan, design and operate the pipeline
- Select prime contractors to construct the pipeline
- Oversee the prime contractors and the construction process to ensure safety standards and specifications are met
The majority of the employment opportunities will be provided through the selected prime contractors (or sub-contractors) who are highly-qualified firms with experience in large pipeline construction. Prime contractors will be required to provide local and Aboriginal participation plans prior to selection and regular reporting on local and Aboriginal participation through construction.
Our team has been meeting with Aboriginal communities, educational institutions, business organizations and economic development agencies throughout British Columbia to identify capable and qualified local businesses. These businesses will then be invited to bid on project work.

Pipelines are the safest method to transport natural gas across long distances. Electronic in-line inspection devices, known as “smart PIGs,” are periodically used on sections of the pipeline system to detect potential defects.
