July 3, 2024 — Ottawa — Impact Assessment Agency of Canada 

Following a thorough environmental assessment based on science and Indigenous Knowledge, the Government of British Columbia approved the Tilbury Marine Jetty Project on March 27, 2024. Today, the Government of Canada issued its final environmental assessment decision allowing the project to proceed.

The project involves the construction and operation of a new marine jetty located on Tilbury Island, along the South Arm of the Fraser River in Delta, B.C. The facility will load Canadian liquefied natural gas (LNG) onto both small bunkers for domestic markets and large carriers for export to international markets. According to Tilbury Jetty Limited Partnership (the proponent), the facility is expected to generate over $100 million in goods and services, revenues for British Columbia businesses and employ over 250 people over a three-year construction period.

To build and operate the new marine terminal, Tilbury Jetty Limited Partnership must comply with legally binding conditions set out in the Minister’s Decision Statement, including measures to reduce impacts to Indigenous Peoples’ current use of lands and resources for traditional purposes, Indigenous cultural heritage, fish and fish habitat, and species at risk including the Southern Resident Killer Whale.

The proponent can now proceed with obtaining any other necessary permits and authorizations from federal departments. This includes authorizations and approvals from Fisheries and Oceans Canada under the Fisheries Act, Transport Canada under the Canadian Navigable Waters Act, and Environment and Climate Change Canada under the Disposal at Sea Regulations.
