Like Mexico, Canada is dominated by LNG regasification terminals.

No LNG liquefaction terminals currently exist, or are being constructed or proposed.

Canada has nine LNG regasification terminals projects that are either under construction or proposed. Two of these facilities are located on the west coast, and seven are located on Canada's east coast.

Gazprom, the largest Russian company and largest extractor of natural gas in the world, is considering supplying the Rabaska LNG regasification terminal located on the eastern Canadian coast. Construction is expected to commence next year.

In British Columbia, on the west coast of Canada, WestPac LNG has proposed a new LNG liquefaction terminal to be located on the northern tip of Texada Island. Texada Island is located between Vancouver Island and mainland British Columbia. WestPac LNG had been working on the environmental assessment for the proposed LNG liquefaction terminal located further north on Ridley Island, but has decided since that the project will not proceed in the immediate future.
