Respecting culture and traditions
Since the announcement of the Prince Rupert Gas Transmission Pipeline Project in 2013 a dedicated team has been working along with Indigenous communities listening to their views, incorporating feedback and caring for sensitive landscapes and culturally and historically significant areas along the route.
Prince Rupert Gas Transmission has built off TransCanada’s proactive approach to community dialogue which is based on three elements: communication, engagement and commitment. We believe it is important to continually communicate with communities, engage on our activities and follow through on our commitments.
Prince Rupert Gas Transmission has worked collaboratively with Indigenous Communities across the pipeline route to communicate and incorporate feedback to minimize disturbances to the environment, important waterways, culturally sensitive areas and traditional land use.
Through engagement Prince Rupert Gas Transmission is working to ensure Indigenous communities benefit directly from the project. Indigenous communities are essential to ensure our project is built in a responsible and respectful manner while benefiting economically through construction and operation of the pipeline.
Ongoing engagement with Indigenous communities include but is not limited to, development of capacity, participation in traditional land use and traditional ecological knowledge studies, facilitating training and creating employment opportunities, supporting businesses and establishing long-term community benefits.
Prince Rupert Gas Transmission is committed to communication and engagement throughout the life of the pipeline. From construction through to operation, Prince Rupert Gas Transmission will ensure concerns are heard and Indigenous communities continue to receive negotiated, long-term project benefits.
