LNG Canada and JGC Fluor project targets women in skilled trades
LNG Canada and its prime contractor, JGC Construction and Fluor, have announced the launch of Your Place, a province-wide workforce development program aimed at attracting, recruiting, training, supporting and employing women to work in the construction trades on the LNG Canada Project.
The program includes a four-week workplace readiness training program and employment supports designed to help women start – and succeed – in the skilled trades. Your Place graduates will have a direct line to employment opportunities in an entry level position with JGC Fluor or one of its subcontractors on the LNG Canada Project site in Kitimat, B.C.
To remove barriers for women considering a career in the trades, the LNG Canada Project will cover the costs of tuition, safety gear and learning materials for all participants, as well as airfare to and from the training in Kitimat and accommodation for participants from outside the local area.
