Together, we're building more than just a project.

We're building prosperous communities now, and for decades to come. From Dawson Creek to Kitimat, collaboration is at the heart of our relationship with local & Indigenous communities.

Coastal GasLink is proud of the strong relationships and agreements we’ve built with the 20 Indigenous groups along the project route. Since we started the project in 2012, these Nations have engaged deeply and meaningfully with us, leading to their support of Coastal GasLink and the recognition of the many opportunities the project will create in their communities.

From Indigenous communities

I support CGL. I have children and grandchildren who are workaholics like I am, and it’s opportunity for them as well.”

Helen Michelle
Hereditary Chief, Wet'suwet'en

icn_pullquote-charcoal.svg  It's going to bring in resources. It's not a strange thing to have a pipeline in our territory. We have had a pipeline in our area since the mid-'60s and it hasn't caused any harm to our environment.”

- Bonnie George, Wet’suwet’en member

icn_pullquote-charcoal.svg  This is a major milestone for West Moberly First Nations. Our team has worked diligently over the past five years to ensure that our cultural and environmental principles are protected, and we continue to work closely with the Coastal GasLink team to maximize the economic benefits for our community members and future generations.”

- Roland Willson, Chief West Moberly First Nations

icn_pullquote-charcoal.svg  After a long and complex journey, we are finally at this important signing event. Coastal GasLink is a project that will impact the entire province and facilitate additional development that will impact our treaty lands for generations to come. We look forward to continuing to work with TransCanada on this and other projects that are environmentally, socially and culturally sustainable.”

- Ken Cameron, former Chief Saulteau First Nation

From the community

Coastal GasLink has been excellent to work with. They are generous to the community, open and honest, and the consultation has been outstanding. It is a great project, not just for our community, but our region, our province, and our country. Clearly when things are done right, like this, how can you not support it?”

Phil Germuth
Mayor, District of Kitimat

icn_pullquote-charcoal.svg  Coastal GasLink is doing more than I've seen any business do in terms of Indigenous engagement and openness, getting the communities involved from day one. It's another level of transparency and openness that Coastal GasLink is putting forward with First Nations communities, and it wasn't something that we always had as First Nations people.”

- Harrison Dickie, Coordinator, CMCL

icn_pullquote-charcoal.svg  The community enjoys that Coastal GasLink comes in and is a part of our community. When you go around the community, you see people that haven't been working get the opportunity to be involved with Coastal GasLink. They help the cafes, restaurants, and our stores, which we like a lot. I think it's thumbs up, for sure.”

- Allen Courtoreille, Mayor District of Chetwynd

icn_pullquote-charcoal.svg  Our communities are really looking forward to the energy this project is going to bring to our area and our businesses, who are obviously excited. When you’re in a downturn, seeing things like this happen is huge and very much needed and appreciated.”

- Sarrah Storey, Mayor, Fraser Lake

From the industry


icn_pullquote-charcoal.svg  We really like what we see in how Coastal GasLink has approached this project. Safety and production is important to them, but so is providing opportunity to local Aboriginal businesses.”

- Mike Acko, Owner, M&M Resources

icn_pullquote-charcoal.svg  Coastal GasLink is an opportunity for communities throughout the North. The benefits will reach into the community - from schools to businesses - for the long term.”

- Fred Wilson, Owner Northwest Truck Rentals

icn_pullquote-charcoal.svg  We are extremely proud that Coastal GasLink has recognized this partnership and chosen us to deliver such an important part of their project.”

- Dean Allen, President Summit Camps

icn_pullquote-charcoal.svg  This is a real benefit to Canada. The income that comes from this and the people that are employed, and the taxes that are generated – it is immense. We look after our economy, we can look after each other.”

- Sean Surerus, President Surerus Murphy Joint Venture
