At Coastal GasLink our top priority is the safety of our workforce, contractors, and the Indigenous and non-Indigenous community members. Our project is fully permitted and has unprecedented support and agreements with all 20 elected Indigenous groups across the 670 km route.
Recently, illegal blockades around the Morice River put our workforce and public safety at serious risk and enforcement activities were necessary to end any interference with Coastal GasLink’s permitted construction activities. Following enforcement by RCMP, all obstacles have been cleared and access to our lodges and public forestry roads have been restored and construction activities have resumed.
We know there’s more to building a pipeline than just materials and construction. The success of Coastal GasLink relies on continually working with local communities, listening to their views, incorporating their feedback and caring for sensitive landscapes and culturally and historically significant places.
Construction continues across the project route, with over 5,000 workers and unprecedented support from local and Indigenous communities who will benefit from jobs and economic opportunities.
