Woodfibre LNG Limited wants to create a long-term social, environmental and economic connection with communities in Howe Sound. The Woodfibre LNG Project would create economic growth in the region, as we are planning to work with the community, postsecondary institutions and all levels of government to ensure that local companies and residents benefit from the opportunities that the project would create. It is our intention to fill positions and contracts locally when possible.
