Woodfibre LNG strives to build strong, respectful and productive working relationships with Indigenous Peoples.

We recognize that the Woodfibre LNG Project falls within the traditional territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation). We are committed to ensuring that Indigenous Peoples in the region are informed and aware of our activities and our commitments to safety and protecting the environment.

A key cornerstone of our approach is to proceed with development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

Collaboratively with Indigenous Peoples, we look to develop sustainability goals that enable cultural and environmental preservation and economic growth and diversification for current and future generations. 

Our aim is to:

  • Accommodate traditional culture and customs in the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh region or nearby project area
  • Incorporate traditional knowledge into planning and development
  • Seek input on baseline feasibility studies and data collection
  • Support sustainable development goals through consultation and legacy projects
  • Support the development of training programs both for project needs as well as for transferable skills and upgrading

Putting Reconciliation in Action

Woodfibre LNG is committed to ensuring that Indigenous Peoples in the region are kept informed about our project. We work hard to demonstrate our commitments to safety and environmental protection through our consultation process. Our environmental and technical teams have also worked collaboratively with representatives from local Indigenous communities throughout the environmental assessment process to integrate traditional knowledge and input into our environmental management plans and the design of the facility. Woodfibre LNG strives to support our Indigenous partners to define their level of participation in our project.
