Coastal GasLink contributes to communities
We believe that by working together, our project can be better for everyone. That’s why, since our project was announced in 2012, we’ve worked alongside local communities to understand their views, listen to their feedback, and build a project that benefits local communities through employment and contracting opportunities, education and skills training, and environmental and community programs.
Coastal GasLink has invested more than $13 million in local and Indigenous communities since 2012.
Training and education
We’re investing in education and training initiatives for local and Indigenous communities and community initiatives focused on the environment, safety and community. Since 2012, Coastal GasLink and TC Energy have spent over $11 million in Community Investments & Sponsorships in Northern B.C. supporting local and Indigenous communities along the route.
Our team is committed to leaving a lasting legacy in your community, long after the Coastal GasLink pipeline is in the ground and safely transporting natural gas. By listening to local residents, community leaders and Indigenous communities, we know this legacy is important to you too. As a result, we’ve developed a plan with two components to invest in skills development and long-term education programs to support Indigenous communities and local residents and trainees. Since 2014, TC Energy has sponsored over 850 classroom seats, scholarships and bursaries for B.C. students, preparing them for projects like Coastal GasLink and other jobs well into the future.
Landowners have the right to know and fully understand what is occurring on or near their land. We believe in treating landowners with honesty, fairness, and respect.
Building positive relationships
TC Energy’s 70+ years of experience has resulted in more than 60,000 positive relationships with landowners in North America. The Coastal GasLink team has been working closely with landowners to identify land restrictions, access routes and other construction requirements. Our ongoing objective is to cause as little disturbance to the land and to landowners as possible.
