The approximately 4-billion dollar project will see the construction of a floating LNG facility in Haisla territory in Kitimat.

The Haisla nation is a majority stakeholder, holding 50.1 percent. 

Cedar LNG will be one of the largest First Nations majority-owned infrastructure projects in Canada.

The project wil employ up to 500 people during peak constructionand provide 100 jobs while operational. 

Tuesday's green light means the project is poised to go ahead. 

Cedar LNG is anticipated to be in sevice by late 2028.
