With the addition of Nadleh Whut’en First Nation and West Moberly First Nations, Coastal GasLink has now signed 11 Project Agreements, demonstrating a strong commitment to building and maintaining positive relationships with First Nations communities.
“Our early and consistent engagement with First Nations has helped establish trust and lay the groundwork for these project agreements,” said Rick Gateman, Coastal GasLink Pipeline Project president. “The deep familiarity and knowledge that First Nations have with their land is a tremendous benefit that TransCanada draws upon throughout its project planning process. These agreements represent only the beginning of the continued discussion and feedback that we will continue to incorporate throughout the construction and operation of this project.”
The 11 Project Agreements that have been signed include: Skin Tyee First Nation, Nee Tahi Buhn Indian Band, Yekooche First Nation, Wet’suwet’en First Nation, Doig River First Nation, Halfway River First Nation, Blueberry River First Nations, Burns Lake Indian Band, Lheidli T’enneh First Nation, Nadleh Whut’en First Nation and West Moberly First Nations.
