The Site

The Woodfibre site is within the District of Squamish, British Columbia, Canada, about seven kilometres southwest of downtown Squamish.

Until the closure of the pulp mill in 2006, Woodfibre was a substantial contributor to the district’s tax base. The site is zoned for industrial use and the District of Squamish’s Official Community Plan designates it for employment and industrial use.

In 2013, Woodfibre LNG signed a purchase agreement with Western Forest Products to acquire the Woodfibre property. As a condition of purchase, Western Forest Products was responsible for cleaning up the site to the industrial standards of today, and obtaining two Certificates of Compliance (COC) from the BC Ministry of Environment.

On December 22, 2014, the Ministry of Environment issued two Certificates of Compliance to Western Forest Products for the Woodfibre site (land and water lots). The COCs can be found in Woodfibre LNG Limited’s BC Environmental Assessment Certificate Application, here. 

On Friday, February 6, 2015, Woodfibre LNG Limited officially became the owner of the Woodfibre site.
