Construction of Site C will create approximately 13,000 person-years of direct employment during construction. Site C will also provide business opportunities from the Peace Region and the rest of the province.
We understand the importance of hiring locally. To help increase the availability of local labour, we've invested approximately $1.5 million in a number of skills and trades training programs.
For a list of positions that may be available throughout the duration of the project, please visit Jobs with Site C.
Site C is creating valuable training and apprenticeship opportunities for young workers and persons new to the trades. It is estimated that about half of Site C’s anticipated workforce will consist of apprenticeable trades.
BC Hydro has included apprenticeship targets in several contracts, including the main civil works, generating station and spillways civil works, the transmission lines and substation contracts.
