Partnering with First Nations 

Unprecedented agreements are in place between First Nations bands and Canadian LNGA members, such as the Squamish Nation-led environmental assessment process for the proposed Woodfibre LNG project, lease agreements with the Haisla Nation and long term benefit agreements that include trades and training opportunities with all of the elected First Nations bands along the proposed Coastal GasLink and Pacific Trail Pipeline natural gas pipelines that will deliver natural gas to the LNG Canada and Kitimat LNG projects.  

The First Nations LNG Alliance is a collective of First Nations who are participating in, and supportive of, sustainable and responsible LNG development in BC. The Alliance has been formed to provide education and information to, and for, First Nations interested in LNG and natural gas projects, and their benefits.

The First Nations Climate Initiative was established by the Leadership of the Lax Kw’alaamsMetlakatla, Nisga’a and Haisla First Nations in British Columbia to serve as a forum for collaboration in the fight against climate change and poverty in First Nation’s communities. Because the development of clean LNG promises to be one of the most meaningful contributions B.C. can make in the fight against climate change and poverty, the FNCI has focused its efforts on understanding the challenges and opportunities associated with the development of LNG and other gas products. 

The FNCI supports electrified LNG plants and pipes that are constructed in their territories that mitigate climate change and if they own a significant equity stake and there are substantial flows of benefits to their communities.
