Statement from BC Hydro on Site C annual and quarterly report filing with the BC Utilities Commission
Today, BC Hydro filed its combined 2019 Site C annual report and quarterly progress report no. 18, along with quarterly progress report no. 19, with the BC Utilities Commission.
The latest employment statistics show that there were 4,324 total workers on the Site C project in June 2020. Of the total workers, 3,106 were from British Columbia, or 72%. There were 825 workers on site from the Peace River Regional District — that's 23% of the construction and non-construction contractor's workforce.
The May workforce numbers reflect BC Hydro’s March 18 decision to scale back construction activites on the Site C dam site, as well as the May 14 announcement to safely and gradually begin increasing construction activities at the dam site.
