Youth introduced to welding in Prince Rupert, funded by LNG


Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth got a hands-on introduction to welding this week after LNG Canada partnered with CWB Welding Foundation to deliver a week-long camp in Prince Rupert.

The camp, Arx and Sparx, was developed by the CWB Welding Foundation, a national not-for-profit organization supporting the need for skilled welding tradespeople. LNG Canada funded the camp which was hosted by Coast Mountain College.

“By introducing young people to trades training programs while they are still in school, we hope they will be left with a positive impression and consider pursuing trades certification when they graduate.”

– Tracey MacKinnon, Workforce Development Manager, LNG Canada

This camp is one of six welding camps LNG Canada funded across B.C. this summer as part of their long-term workforce development strategy to increase participation in trades training for a highly-skilled Canadian welding workforce.
