We are working with Aboriginal communities through our Aboriginal engagement program to identify community members to be trained for project field work opportunities.
We recognize that there are varying needs and capacity in different communities. As such, the Coastal GasLink project team is developing an Aboriginal Employment and Training Plan through discussions with Aboriginal communities. The plan will focus on opportunities that arise in the construction and operations phases of the project. More information on this plan will be presented here when it is complete.
We will keep communities informed about the jobs and skills required to build the Coastal GasLink pipeline. The current target date for the start of construction is 2015.
