BC Hydro recognizes the importance of hiring locally. To help increase the availability of local labour, BC Hydro has 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.
