We want to hear from you.
Pacific NorthWest LNG submitted an environmental assessment application to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA) and the BC Environmental Assessment Office (BC EAO) in February 2014. In November 2014, the provincial government issued the project an Environmental Certificate; the federal government is expected to make a decision on our application in 2015.
We are committed to ongoing public engagement with First Nations, the local community and other stakeholders. In January 2015 we hosted open houses in Port Edward, Prince Rupert and Terrace to provide more information about the project and any answer questions from community members.
Our community offices are open in Prince Rupert and Port Edward. We hope you’ll visit to meet our team and share your feedback.
Our April, 2014 community open houses in Port Edward and Prince Rupert were part of the formal regulatory process led by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA). We were very pleased to have been joined by more than 100 members of local communities, who came out to learn more about the project, ask questions of our team members, and contribute their feedback to us and the regulators. If you attended an open house and didn’t have an opportunity to fill out a comment card while there, please click here to fill out our online feedback form.
Pacific NorthWest LNG is committed to ongoing and meaningful dialogue with the community. We have met with all levels of government, First Nations, community groups and local businesses to actively engage the community and to learn more about what matters most to the people that live and work in the region. The final design of the facility is still being developed and an open dialogue with the community will ensure that local voices help shape the project.
In addition to our April 2014 open houses, we previously held open houses in November 2013, June 2013, and November 2012 in Port Edward and Prince Rupert respectively. We have also had numerous one-on-one meetings with community groups, local businesses and individuals. A summary of our public engagement activities is available in our environmental assessment application.
Pacific NorthWest LNG views consultation as an ongoing process that will last not only for the design and construction of the facility but throughout the life of the project as well.
Information on upcoming community events and information sessions will be posted here as they become available. If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 1 866 931 2201.
