Woodfibre LNG has announced that the Squamish Nation Council has voted and approved three agreements regarding the Woodfibre LNG project.

The three agreements are with Woodfibre LNG Ltd, FortisBC and the province of British Columbia (B.C.). According to the statement, these agreements mean that Squamish Nation has granted approval for the project to proceed.

Byng Giraud, Vice President, Corporate Affairs, Woodfibre LNG Ltd, said: “As a company, we are pleased to have fulfilled another key condition of the Squamish Nation’s environmental certificate for the Woodfibre LNG Project.

“The Woodfibre LNG Project is the first industrial project to undergo Squamish Nation’s groundbreaking environmental assessment process – and is the first industrial project in Canada to be awarded an environmental certificate by an Indigenous government.

“We believe the Squamish Nation process and the resulting conditions are an important pathway to economic reconciliation.

“We continue to work to meet all Squamish Nation conditions for the Woodfibre LNG Project. These conditions include co-authoring environmental management plans and Squamish Nation environmental monitoring through construction, operation and decommissioning of the Woodfibre LNG Project.”
