The beginning of June marks the end of Child Care Provider month, and we’re honoured to have been able to support the Beanstalk Childcare Centre in Houston, BC with building their new outdoor classroom.
For us, it’s about building more than just a pipeline. We’re committed to leaving a lasting legacy in the communities along our project route as well. One of our prime contractors, Macro Spiecapeg Joint Venture (MSJV) and one of our Lodge providers Civeo, shared this same commitment when they took it upon themselves to host a bottle drive in Houston, B.C. With the bottles donated and funds raised, the organization got to work on building an outdoor classroom.

“MSJV is committed to operating in an environmentally responsible manner everywhere we do business. One of the best ways for children to learn about the environment is to experience it,” said Joan, Indigenous & Community Relations, MSJV. “This joint initiative will provide a classroom where the children learn to respect and care for the outdoors by seeing it and being a part of it from a young age. We are so pleased we could be a part of this” she continued.
Sophie, a Field Administrator with Coastal GasLink said, “It’s rewarding. As a local [of Smithers], I’m appreciative because we have growing communities that needed our support and now, we’ve been able to help them.”
Since January 2021, Coastal GasLink’s community investments and donations through Empower have resulted in more than $60,000 being donated to local organizations within the District of Houston community.
Thank you to all of the childcare providers for your dedicated work in shaping the brilliant minds of our future energy problem solvers.
