Joint Media Statement on the Terra Nova Project

The following municipalities from the North East Avalon are calling on all the partners in industry and government to invest in our people, our industry and our communities by coming to a resolution that will see the Terra Nova project move into its new life of productivity.

The offshore industry has been integral to our social and economic wellbeing. It has afforded us opportunities to cultivate a research and development sector, diversify into new areas of business and technology, presented opportunities to grow our talents and expertise and support our communities through a myriad of social and community programs.

Like the province our municipalities are committed to economic and environmental sustainability and we see these commitments complementary to energy transition.

The Terra Nova project is important in this transition and has a significant impact on the economic sustainability of all our communities.
