Deal is ‘a big part’ of Miawpukek First Nation’s plan toward self-sufficiency
The Miawpukek First Nation and the First Nations Major Projects Coalition have signed an agreement to work toward increased equity participation in a project to earn revenue from liquefied natural gas.
The agreement, which was signed on the first day of the Newfoundland and Labrador Oil and Gas Industries Association conference in St. John’s, represents the first-ever Indigenous participation in an offshore energy project in the province.
“The benefits by way of own source revenue generation and the jobs this project will create for our community members is significant and a big part of our plan for self-sufficiency,” said Miawpukek First Nation Chief Misel Joe in a statement.
