Funding is now available to help the public and Indigenous groups participate in the assessment process for Cedar LNG.

Cedar LNG project is a floating liquefied natural gas processing facility and marine export terminal. It would process and liquefy natural gas to produce approximately 3 to 4 million tonnes of LNG per year. It would also include storage capacity for up to 250,000 cubic metres of LNG. Its lifespan would be at least 25 years.

Moreover, the project brings together the Haisla Nation and Pembina Pipeline Corporation to develop the Haisla Nation-led project.

The project is subject to federal and local environmental acts and is undergoing a substituted review process. This means the Government of British Columbia is conducting the impact assessment on behalf of the Agency; providing a single assessment process that meets the requirements of both the provincial and federal governments.

Funding is available for individuals and groups to assist their participation in the upcoming steps of the project’s assessment. These include reviewing and providing comments on the proponent’s application, as well as on the draft assessment report and potential conditions.
