ANATOMY OF A DEAL: LNG CANADA AND THE LARGEST FDI IN CANADIAN HISTORY

December 13, 2018 | Canada 2020 | Château Laurier Hotel (Laurier Room), Ottawa

On December 13th, 2018, Canada 2020 will host a conversation about the recent $40 Billion LNG Canada investment - the single-largest private sector investment in Canadian history.

Last October in Vancouver, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, alongside LNG CEO Andy Calitz, announced that British Columbia will soon be home to a new mega-pipeline and export infrastructure project which will see Canadian liquified natural gas shipped over land and sea to new markets around the world, primarily in Asia.

Vital to this announcement was a commitment by industry and labour partners: lower emissions, increased skills training and replacing demand for other more polluting fossil fuels in some of the world’s fastest-growing markets.

Equally as important was the support from and partnership with Indigenous communities along the pipeline's route - a rarity for projects of this size and scale.

The reach and impact of this investment are extensive - and provides a useful case study of how public policy, business strategy and indigenous partnership can work together to get something built in Canada.

We want to know how the deal came to be, what problems it solves for Canada's struggling resource sector, and how the government intends to work with industry, labour, and indigenous partners to deliver on this $40 billion investment.
