Environmental Assessment

In March 2023, Cedar LNG received an Environmental Assessment Certificate from the provincial government and a positive Decision Statement from the federal government. The project underwent a thorough environmental assessment process in accordance with the requirements of both the federal and the provincial environmental assessment legislation. Environmental approval marks the culmination of more than a decade of work by the Haisla Nation to understand how best to develop one of the lowest carbon intensity LNG facilities in the world. Cedar LNG is committed to advancing a best-in-class LNG project that protects the environment, respects Haisla and local values, and meets the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility.

After the Environmental Assessment

In addition to an Environmental Assessment Certificate and positive federal Decision Statement, Cedar LNG has also received a range of other approvals required to start construction from the BC Energy Regulator. We will obtain permits from Transport Canada, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, and other regulatory agencies as construction advances.
