BC Hydro’s top priority on the Site C project will always be the safety of our employees, workers and people living in the community.
There are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 at the Site C project.
Following a conversation with local mayors and elected officials on March 22, BC Hydro committed that it would not move any Site C worker in self-isolation at camp into the city.
We look forward to further conversations with the City of Fort St. John to discuss the measures we’re taking to keep workers and the community safe, while reducing the potential impact on local hospitals and medical facilities.
The project is strictly following provincial health guidelines at site and we will continue to work with Northern Health to develop an acceptable approach to moving workers back to their homes.
Site C is an important project for the local economy and we will continue to move the project forward on critical work areas.
