Our story is about creating a meaningful connection between our land and way of life with economic development.
The Western Indigenous Pipeline Group (WIPG) is a wholly owned Indigenous company led by Chiefs and community leaders, which represents the communities directly impacted by Trans Mountain Pipeline and Expansion (collectively, Trans Mountain) in B.C. and Alberta. WIPG was formed to acquire a major stake in Trans Mountain for the benefit of Indigenous communities who live along the pipeline. By purchasing Trans Mountain, Indigenous communities will ensure their environmental, community and economic goals are met. WIPG is a local organization with real ties to the people and the lands around Trans Mountain.
