CONSULTATION

We’ve been engaging with First Nations on the project since 2014, and engagement will continue beyond the EAC decision. This engagement has helped us better understand the history and significance of the land and people of the area, which has resulted in some design changes to limit environmental impacts. As the project moves forward, Indigenous communities will have opportunities for training and employment, business procurement and ongoing monitoring.

The jetty has received 11 consent letters from the following First Nations:

  • Snuneymuxw First Nation
  • T’Sou-ke Nation
  • Esquimalt Nation
  • Scia’new (Beecher Bay) First Nation
  • Pacheedaht First Nation
  • Pauquachin First Nation
  • Maa-nulth First Nations (First Nations of Maa-nulth Treaty Society: Huu-ay-aht, Ka:’yu:’k’t’h’/Che:k’tles7et’h’, Toquaht, Uchucklesaht and Yuułuʔiłʔatḥ First Nations).

In August 2022, FortisBC and Musqueam Indian Band reached an agreement, which will result in further partnership and the sharing of benefits associated with the Tilbury LNG Projects, including the Tilbury Pacific Marine Jetty.
