BC Hydro has announced the new dates for its postponed Site-C dam project Peace Region Job Fairs.
Originally set for the last week in July, they’ve now been rescheduled for the first week in October, and will offer local area job seekers opportunities to meet with project contractors.
This is Hydro spokesman, Dave Conway.
“For Tumbler Ridge, Monday October 5 at the Trend Mountain Hotel and Conference Centre, Chetwynd October 6 at the Cottonwood Hall, Fort St. John October 7 which will be two business to business networking sessions and then Fort St. John October 8 for the job fair. Both of those will be held at the Ralph Pomeroy room at the Pomeroy Hotel.
People can already apply directly to the contactors without the job fairs by going to the website and looking up under business and job opportunities and the contractors contact information to submit their information is there. It will be things where they are looking for people right now. I know for example Morgan Construction, Two Rivers Lodging Group are already looking to fill positions and some of them are for future positions as well,” he said.
The job fairs were postponed following the police shooting death this summer of 48 year old, James Daniel McIntyre of Dawson Creek, at a Hydro Site-C open house meeting in that city.
The RCMP answered a July 16th disturbance call, but later confirmed the shooting victim,described by police as aggressive, was not the one who initiated the disturbance.
Earlier this week, the Globe & Mail reported, that 66 year old Peace Region farmer Terry Hadland has now confirmed, he was the man who caused the trouble.
