Get the facts – project benefits
What does Coastal GasLink mean for you and your community?
Property tax revenues
An estimated $20.88 million in annual property tax benefits will support community services such as fire protection, policing, schools, hospital districts and waste management.
An estimated 2,000 to 2,500 high quality, well-paying jobs will be created during construction and 16 to 35 permanent positions during operation. LNG Canada will also provide numerous benefits through the construction and operation of its LNG facility.
We’re expecting construction to cost over $4.8 billion, with at least 32 per cent of that spend taking place in B.C. Once the pipeline is in operation, an additional $42 million is forecast to be spent each year, mainly in B.C.
There will be increased demand for the use of local goods and services including food and accommodation, hardware, fuel, parts, equipment servicing. Watch how local businesses like Getumdone Contracting Ltd. have already worked on the project.
We’ve spent almost $48 million in northern B.C., plus over $2 million in community and Aboriginal investments along the route including the Chetwynd and District Hospital. This $100,000 partnership will assist in the development of a new medical centre that will provide more efficient access to medical services and shorter patient wait times, establish an accessible health education and wellness awareness centre, and help attract new physicians.

Education and training
We’re investing in education and training initiatives for local and Aboriginal communities and community initiatives focused on environment, safety and community. Since 2012, TransCanada has invested approximately $6.5 million in communities like yours.
Since 2014, TransCanada has sponsored 450+ classroom seats for B.C. students, preparing them for projects like Coastal GasLink.
