    Transparent and upstream consultation mechanisms

    GNL Quebec aims to become a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) industry leader in terms of health, safety, and social and environmental acceptance, based on a sustainable development principle.

    Hence, a consultation process is designed to involve local communities as early as possible in the planning stages of the Énergie Saguenay Project. This approach relies on a number of undertakings, such as the engagement of advisory committees, a community relations office, a Twiter account and a Facebook page focused on exchanges with communities.



    • Validation of the project’s technical and commercial feasibility with prominent industry experts
    • Conducting baseline studies for environmental assessment
    • Obtaining a LNG Export licence from the National Energy Board
    • Setting up a follow-up committee and signing a collaboration agreement with the Innu First Nations of Mashteuiatsh, Essipit and Pessamit
    • Opening of the headquarter in Saguenay that also serves the purpose of community relations office 
    • Establishment of an Advisory Committee on the Natural Gas Liquefaction Facility
    • Establishment of an expanded committee on marine transportation
    • Grant mandate for the environmental and social impact assessment
