Teamsters Canada is proud to support the Eagle Spirit Energy Corridor Project, a $12 billion First Nations-led pipeline and energy corridor between Fort McMurray, Alberta and Grassy Point, BC.
The venture, which is endorsed by every one of the First Nations along the proposed route, would be the first indigenous-led major infrastructure project in Canadian history. It stands to employ thousands of construction workers and count as a new source of revenue for governments and indigenous communities.
As is normally the case with projects of this scale and ambition, members of Canada’s four craft unions (Teamsters Canada, IUOE, UA and LiUNA) will build the pipeline and pumping stations. A memorandum of agreement to that effect was signed earlier this month.
