Connecting qualified workers with opportunities in the skilled trades is crucial to successful workforce development, particularly for the promising LNG industry. To tackle this challenge in northern B.C., LNG Canada and its pipeline partner TransCanada’s Coastal GasLink have teamed up to expand the ‘Connect’ program to Smithers, giving local job seekers better access to current local opportunities in the construction industry.

Consistent with the LNG Canada Connect program operating in Kitimat and Terrace since 2015, which has already connected more than 200 local candidates to construction jobs, the newly expanded program will be managed by the British Columbia Construction Association (BCCA). The initiative was first completely funded by LNG Canada and operated as an extension to BCCA’s Skilled Trades Employment Program (STEP).
