The proposed Prince Rupert Gas Transmission Project will provide employment for British Columbia families and millions of dollars in annual tax revenue for local governments.
Construction of the pipeline will create thousands of temporary jobs over a four-year period.
In addition to construction jobs, the project will create demand for local goods and services, such as lodging and accommodation, gravel supply and construction equipment.
Once it’s operating, the pipeline will generate millions of dollars each year in property taxes. Tax payments go the provincial government, where it is allocated to schools and hospitals, emergency services, recreation, regional district operations and a variety of other services that create strong communities.
The operation of the pipeline will also support development of British Columbia’s natural gas resources. That means increased revenues for the provincial government and its programs.
Global demand for cleaner energy is growing, and British Columbia is in a prime position to meet that demand through the development of an LNG industry. TransCanada is well positioned to be a key player through both the Prince Rupert Gas Transmission and Coastal GasLink natural gas pipeline projects.

Throughout 18 months of consultation and field studies, we continuously refined the proposed route of this project, taking into account feedback from Aboriginal groups and stakeholders such as communities and landowners.
Prince Rupert Gas will provide contracting and employment opportunities to qualified local and Aboriginal businesses and individuals near the proposed project.
