THE PROVINCE – B.C. government funds LNG-related jobs study by First Nations

DECEMBER 17, 2014

FORT ST. JOHN — The B.C. government is giving money to a group of five First Nations to study liquefied natural gas-related job opportunities.

The province says the Treaty 8 Tribal Association will get nearly $134,000 for a labour market study that will culminate in a report to be released next year.

The project is expected to take 43 weeks and involve a consultant working with the First Nations to look at what skills are needed for future jobs in economic development, including LNG.

Peace River North MLA Pat Pimm said Treaty 8 members will play an important role in supplying workers to help with an expected labour shortage in the area.
