LNG trades training program for women launched

LNG Canada on Monday announced a training program for women will be part of its plan to have a ten per cent female workforce for the construction of its $40 billion Liquified Natural Gas export facility in Kitimat, B.C.

The company, a joint venture of Shell, Petronas, PetroChina, Mitsubishi and Kogas, has repeatedly professed a commitment to ‘hire local first’ on the megaproject, promising 10,000 Canadian jobs by its completion. The project is the largest ever private sector investment in Canada.

LNG Canada’s commitment to hire local people to construct the project fulfilled one of the provincial government’s key conditions for approval of the project. Branded ‘Your Place,’ the training program announced Monday aims to bring 200 women into the Kitimat project in a wide variety of entry-level positions including construction, heavy equipment operation, iron working, electrical work and pipe work. Participating women will have their tuition, safety equipment, flights and accommodations paid for by LNG Canada.
