BC has signed another LNG benefits agreement, this time with a group of First Nations along the coast.
The latest agreement is with the Wuikinuxv, Heiltsuk, Kitasoo/Xaixais, Gitga’at, and Metlakatla First Nations, and will deliver $1.5 million in annual funding for three years.
More money will become available depending on how many LNG projects give the final go-ahead.
In a release, the province says the Coastal First Nations LNG Benefits Agreement will provide certainty to LNG proponents in their final investment decision making process.
