The government of British Columbia (B.C.), Canada, has announced that it has signed the Coastal First Nations LNG Benefits Agreement. The agreement commits the Canadian province to helping address economic benefits and environmental impacts of the LNG industry.

B.C. has committed to work with the groups on environmental safety and stewardship, air-shed impacts, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, renewable energy, skills training and employment projects. The agreement will deliver a base of CAN$1.5 million/yr for three years, with further funding available based on how many LNG projects in the region are established.

Coastal First Nations have previously offered their input on benchmarks for emissions from LNG plants and two air-shed studies related to proposed LNG facilities in the Kitimat and Prince Rupert areas. They also continue to be involved in the discussions on marine shipping in B.C.
