Woodfibre LNG will create more than 650 direct jobs during each year of construction, as well as more than 100 direct long-term local jobs during operation.
You are asking about other benefits, though, and our experts have looked at that as well. They found that Woodfibre LNG will create more than 1,080 indirect and induced jobs during construction and more than 330 indirect and induced jobs during operation. These are jobs in a variety of fields, from trades, to hospitality services, to marine transportation and professional services.
For more information, attached below is the board on economic benefits we presented during the Open Houses put on by the Environmental Assessment Office. It gives a more fulsome picture of the economic benefits our Project is expected to deliver.
