LNG Canada’s Commitment to Women on International Women’s Day

Share

LNG Canada embraces gender equity and supports the full participation of women in society.

We are committed to having an environment of inclusion and respect, where employees and business partners can openly and honestly contribute their talents, ideas and experiences.

We believe that inclusion and diversity are imperative to the success of our business, in the communities in which we operate, and in our relationships with stakeholders. By employing people of diverse cultures, backgrounds, beliefs, gender identities and experiences, LNG Canada employees are better able to reach their business goals and help build healthy communities.

Encouraging participation in the construction trades

Women make up half the general workforce in Canada, but just under 5% of skilled construction workers on a typical worksite. We’re working to improve that.

As of January 2020, 252 women were at work on the LNG Canada project site in Kitimat, B.C. That represents 21% of the site’s total workforce.

LNG Canada offers tuition-free training designed to help women start – and succeed – in the skilled trades, leading to opportunities for employment with our prime contractor JGC Fluor BC LNG JV and its subcontractors at the LNG Canada project.

The four-week, customized training program is delivered by Women Building Futures, an organization with over 20 years experience preparing, training and supporting women to succeed in the trades. The training program is part of a unique employment initiative we call YOUR PLACE, which recruits, trains, supports and employs women in the construction trades.

As of January 2020, YOUR PLACE had achieved the following:
