LNG Canada

LNG Canada is Canada’s largest LNG export project, which will liquefy gas fracked in British Columbia and export it to markets in Asia. The Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) supports both the LNG Canada project and the Montney Shale Gas Development Project. Japanese private banks are financiers of the Coastal GasLink Pipeline Project (CGL Project) that transports natural gas from gas development field to export terminals. The pipeline project, which is an inseparable part of the LNG Canada project, is being developed against the First Nations’s will, who has been opposing the construction of the pipeline. In other words, Canadian government and project implementers have not obtained “free, prior and informed consent” (FPIC) from the First Nations.
