Halifax, NS (October 03, 2018) – On Tuesday, October 02, 2018, LNG Canada announced a Final Investment Decision (FID) to approve the construction of a liquefied natural gas facility in Kitimat, BC. Content partner Journeyman captured the moment on camera in Vancouver, provided a live webcast to locations in Calgary, Kitimat and Yokohama, and began preparations for building the next chapter in the story of this project. 

Journeyman has partnered with LNG Canada for the past 5 years to strategize, produce and curate video content to help position this joint venture as the project of choice in Northern BC. Journeyman has built a reputation for successfully helping brands and companies use the power of storytelling and compelling branded video content to engage audiences. Journeyman’s purpose is to help people connect with the big stories of the day, including energy transition, climate change, ocean economy, and economic reconciliation with First Nations.

“The key purpose of the work we have been doing is helping LNG Canada to build community support, and to create better understanding and engagement with the project,”said Nic Fieldsend, Director of Client Strategy & Development, Journeyman “People care a lot about these big topic issues that are often misunderstood. We’re excited to contribute to such an important discussion.”

The challenge ahead:
“We’re very proud to be a partner with LNG Canada and excited by the opportunity to continue to build this story. It has been fascinating to work alongside this team to observe how such a monumental project takes shape with care for the community, for First Nations, for the environment and for the Canadian economy,” said Mathew Welsh, Founder & CEO, Journeyman. “As a filmmaker, it’s gratifying to take part in a project that sits at the heart of Canada’s most complex economic and political challenges.”
