Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline is committed to building long-term, productive relationships with First Nations based upon mutually beneficial opportunities and mutual respect. Maritimes & Northeast participates in formal agreements with First Nation representative organizations in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.
These agreements recognize the special historical and cultural interest held in the land by the Mi’kmaq and Maliseet people of Atlantic Canada; and endeavor to meet the needs of both the community and the company. Our agreements share the following key elements:
- Transparency and accountability
- Community development and employment
- Consultation and information sharing
Maritimes & Northeast is proud of its First Nation relationships and of the benefits delivered through the shared agreements. Through scholarships and training funds, the agreement strives to build community capacity; which in turn supports achievement of mutually beneficial employment opportunities during periods of pipeline construction, and through other economic sectors.
