Indigenous groups sign historic equity option agreements with TC Energy on Coastal GasLink
Indigenous people have been instrumental in the construction of Coastal GasLink. Since construction began, hundreds of key roles have been held by local Indigenous people, and over $1 billion in contracts have been awarded to local Indigenous businesses on the project. In 2021 alone, we invested over $550,000 in local Indigenous communities to support community initiatives, skills training and education.
“We are proud to advance our relationships with the Indigenous communities across the route through equity ownership in Coastal GasLink. Together, as business partners, we have the opportunity to learn, grow and change the way energy is developed in Canada. This is one of the ways we can advance reconciliation,” shares Francois Poirier, President and Chief Executive Officer, TC Energy.
