Aboriginal Pipeline Group (APG)

Aboriginal Pipeline Group (APG)The Aboriginal Pipeline Group (APG) was formed in 2000 to represent the interest of the aboriginal peoples of the Northwest Territories in the proposed Mackenzie Valley Pipeline became a full participant in the Project in June 2003.

Two other related organizations have also been formed:

  • Mackenzie Valley Aboriginal Pipeline Limited Partnership (MVAPLP). MVAPLP holds the APG's financial interest in the Mackenzie Valley Pipeline. MVAPLP is to be owned primarily by organizations under the directrion of the Deh Cho, Sahtu, Gwich'in and Invialuit. The other Northwest Territories settlement areas (the Akaitcho, Dogrib, Salt River, North Slave Metis Alliance and South Slave Metis Alliance) will be given an opportunity to participate in the MVAPLP at the discretion of the Deh Cho, Sahtu, Gwich'in and Inuvialuit.


  • Mackenzie Valley Aboriginal Pipeline Corporation (MVAPC). MVAPC is the general partner of MVAPLP.

In October 2001, the Mackenzie Valley Aboriginal Pipeline Corporation entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the four producing companies. The MVAPC (known more commonly as the APG) became a full participant in the Project in June 2003 following funding and participation agreements between between the four producers, the APG and TransCanada Pipelines Limited. These agreements enhance the rights of the APG as defined in the Memorandum of Understanding and chart a course for the Project to move forward in a way that will create real and lasting benefits for the people of the North.
