Anti-oil and gas activists are misrepresenting the global opportunity for Canadian liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports and the benefits these projects have for Indigenous communities.

Why is this important?

Canadian LNG will not only benefit Canada, but a more climate-conscious world as well. Now is not the time to fight the progress being made.

Here’s the facts:

Emissions:

  • LNG reduces global greenhouse gas emissions.
    • On average, switching from coal to natural gas for power reduces emissions by 50%.
  • Canadian LNG is expected to have less than half the emissions intensity of the global average.

Demand:

  • LNG demand is expected to double by 2040, driven primarily by Asian economies replacing higher-emissions energy like coal. For example, South Korea plans to replace 24 coal-fired plants to natural gas from LNG by 2034.

Indigenous Opportunity

  • First Nations communities have seen the opportunity and some are now moving ahead with their own LNG projects.
  • The Coastal Gas Link pipeline has the support of all 20 elected Indigenous bands along its route.
  • The Haisla First Nation in B.C. has seen community transformation because of LNG Canada.
