Training & Education
Get the facts – training & education
Our team is committed to leaving a lasting legacy in your community, long after the Coastal GasLink pipeline is in the ground and safely transporting natural gas. By listening to local residents, community leaders and First Nations communities, we know this legacy is important to you too. As a result, we’ve developed a plan with two components to invest in skills development and long-term education programs to support Aboriginal and local residents and trainees. Since 2014, TransCanada’s education and training programs have opened up over 450 seats in classrooms for students in B.C.
Pathway to Pipeline Readiness Program
A project like Coastal GasLink requires a skilled labour force to help build and operate the pipeline. The Pathway to Pipeline Readiness Program focuses on developing these essential and transferable skills through several partnerships. This program includes partnerships with:
- Northwest Community College
- College of New Caledonia
- Tribal Resources Investment Corporation (TRICORP)
- Prince George Nechako Aboriginal Employment Training Association (PGNAETA)
Education Legacy Program
TransCanada’s Education Legacy Program in northern B.C. looks for opportunities to build long-term community capacity through educational initiatives. This program includes partnerships with:
- Breakfast Club of Canada
- University of Northern B.C.
We’re proud of our history and experience. TransCanada has been safely operating in B.C. for 50+ years.
