LNG trades training program for women launched
LNG Canada and its main contractor, JGC Fluor, are launching a new four-week work-readiness program aimed at getting more women into the skilled trades. The program, called Your Place, is intended to attract, recruit and retain more women in construction trades.
For women graduating from trades training programs, JGC Fluor will provide entry level opportunities for graduate trainees on the $40 billion LNG Canada project. At peak construction, the project will employ up to 7,500 workers. Women who already have trades skills are also encouraged to apply for jobs on the project.
The four-week training program is open to all women 18 and older. Training will be provided in Kitimat. For those women who sign up for the program, the company will cover the cost of return flights and accommodation during the four-week program.
