The Cedar LNG Project is a proposed floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility in Kitimat, British Columbia, Canada, within the traditional territory of the Haisla Nation. The Project is strategically positioned to leverage Canada’s abundant natural gas supply and BC’s growing liquefied natural gas (LNG) infrastructure to produce industry-leading low carbon, low-cost Canadian LNG for new overseas markets. By using an innovative design philosophy that fits the facility into the local environment, the Cedar LNG Project will minimize the impact to the local environment while creating value for customers, and prosperity for the Haisla Nation, and the region.
Welcome to Haisla Nation Territory
The Xa’is’la or Haisla Nation have occupied their traditional territories in Northwestern British Columbia, since time immemorial. We are an amalgamated Nation of both Haisla and Henaksiala people, and today, our Nation is comprised of approximately 1900 members.
Based on our ancestors and previous Leader’s goals and objectives, we continue to strive towards self-sufficiency by empowering our Nation, via partnerships, internal capacity building and economic reconciliation; as we strive to rebuild our economies based on Haisla goals, values and principles of respect, for the environment, for people, for our partners, and for our neighbours.
In the spirit of our Nu’yem (cultural laws), our ancestors and elders teaching of values, we know that in order to attain strength and independence our Nation must work together – with government, business, industry, the community, the region and internally – with a spirit of respect and partnership.
Cedars are the roots to our existence
The Cedar LNG Project will be the first Indigenous-majority owned LNG export facility in Canada, which will provide unprecedented opportunity for both Haisla Nation and the region.
Paul Windsor, a well-known Haisla artist was commissioned to design a piece of traditional Haisla art that reflects the charismatic features of Haisla Nation territory while providing guidance to the project team.
- The eagle represents the unified vision and balance between the Haisla and the project development partners
- The feather of the eagle represents the shared stake, communication, respect and liberty of the individuals within the project
- The simplified cedar trees and vibrant green hills / land symbolize the Haisla territory and align with the project name
The Cedar LNG logo was inspired by key elements of Paul Windsor’s art including the cedar trees, the green from Haisla territory, and the ovoid shape.
