The Woodfibre Liquid Natural Gas project consists of a LNG facility at the former Woodfibre pulp and paper mill on the west side of Howe Sound and includes a 50 km natural gas pipeline that runs from Coquitlam to the Woodfibre site.
The two projects are subject to the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation)’s environmental assessment (EA) process, the first legally-binding Indigenous-led environmental assessment of a project in Canada.
The Nation’s approval of Environmental Certificates for the Woodfibre LNG and Fortis BC projects triggered the creation of an Environmental Working Group for each project. It is the job of the Environmental Working Groups to ensure the Nation’s environmental conditions are met.
Since June 2019, the Nation’s Environmental Working Group and the Environmental Subcommittee of the IBA Implementation Committee have published project updates through the community newsletters.
