Jobs and Community involvement key aspect of Pacific Northwest LNG presentation to Council

Representatives of Pacific Northwest LNG provided a short review of the progress of their proposed development for Prince Rupert Council on Monday evening.  

And for most of those that may have been viewing it from the City's Video feed, the prospect of employment options to come probably was the main takeaway from the presentation.

While Ms. Tessa Gill from Pacific Northwest offered up a bit of a timeline review and some of the changes to design that the company has made after local consultation, the two most intriguing items were related to job opportunities and community involvement.

With Ms. Gill outlining that while a good portion of the jobs will be for trades qualified workers, there will be many opportunities for those with at least a Grade Twelve diploma to take advantage of. 

Suggesting that local residents take advantage of the local office in the Capital Mall on Third Avenue to learn more about what positions they may be able to apply for as the project moves forward.  As well she urged local residents to participate in their Jobs, Education and Training survey.

In addition to the bounty of jobs that could soon arrive, she also reviewed some of the community involvement that the company has taken part in since they arrived on the scene. Advising that they are always seeking more input from the community as to who they could work with to address community needs.

You can take in the full presentation from the City's Video Archive, it starts at the three minute mark and continues on until the nineteen minute mark.
