Our commitment

Environmental considerations

TC Energy is committed to protecting the environment.

As part of project planning and development, NGTL is preparing an Environmental and Socioeconomic Assessment (ESA). We collected data on a number of environmental elements including, but not limited to, soils and terrain, wildlife and wildlife habitat, vegetation and wetlands, fish and fish habitat, heritage resources, air emissions and acoustic environment, and socioeconomic considerations such as land and resource use, infrastructure and services, and social and cultural well-being.

In addition, an Environmental Protection Plan (EPP) is under development to identify the necessary environmental protection measures to be implemented for the Project, which ensures responsible construction and results in a return to equivalent land capability.

Project benefits

The Project will deliver well-designed and constructed infrastructure that provides short-term and long-term economic benefits and strengthens the economy on a local, provincial and national level.

  • Employment opportunities — Construction will require the services of equipment operators, welders, mechanics, truck drivers, labourers and more.
  • Business opportunities — Pipeline construction will create demand for local goods and services, including food and accommodation, hardware, industrial parts, automotive parts and servicing, fuel and more.
  • Annual revenue to support local services — Project construction will result in tax payments to municipal, provincial and federal governments. When the Project is operational, annual tax payments will help support schools and hospitals, emergency services, recreation facilities, recycling programs and other local programs vital to sustaining communities. 
  • Investments in local communities — Through our engagement with local communities, we will identify areas where we can help build stronger, more vibrant communities through initiatives with community partnerships in the areas of safety, community and environment.

Working with Indigenous groups

We welcome input and support from Indigenous groups so we can identify specific concerns, environmental sensitivities and culturally important areas along potential route options. We will provide opportunities to Indigenous groups to provide feedback throughout engagement and during the regulatory process. Learn more about how we work with Indigenous groups.

Safety is our number one value

For more than 70 years, TC Energy has been a leader in the safe and reliable operation of North American energy infrastructure. From design and construction, to operations and maintenance, safety is integral to everything we do. The Project will be designed, constructed and operated in a safe and environmentally responsible manner. Learn more about our safety practices.
