Business Opportunities

The business opportunities section provides information about BC Hydro’s procurement approach for the project, current business opportunities, a forecast of upcoming procurements, and an online sign-up form for the Site C Business Directory.

Our Approach

BC Hydro is committed to supporting local jobs and businesses throughout the construction of Site C.

The project provides significant employment and procurement opportunities for residents and businesses of all types and sizes, from the Peace Region as well as the rest of the province. Construction activities require labour, equipment, goods and services, and there are direct as well as indirect economic benefits. 

We are working with Peace Region communities to provide local contracting and employment opportunities. We’re also working to advance economic opportunities for Indigenous groups through capacity-building and procurement opportunities. To help increase the availability of local labour, BC Hydro has invested in a number of skills and trades training programs.

Monthly employment statistics

Every month, we release an employment report showing the number of workers on the project, and the composition of the workforce. Read the reports.
