JGC Fluor (JFJV) is committed to diversity, inclusion, and equity on the LNG Canada Project. As a result, several DE&I initiatives are running on the Project. Please scroll down for more information on what we’re doing on-site to ensure we promote a diverse, inclusive, and equitable workplace for everyone.
Growing Representation and Opportunity for Women (GROW)
GROW is a Fluor Initiative adopted by the LNG Canada Project to support opportunities for greater representation of women at all levels.
This is the first time GROW has operated on a Project site.
GROW focuses on providing an environment that promotes equal access opportunities to build diverse and engaged project teams. It elevates the ability to leverage the complementary skill sets of people working together at all levels of business to drive innovation, engagement, and excellence in execution.
GROW holds meetings and events and runs many initiatives on the LNG Canada Project throughout the year. For more information, to join, or to learn about future events, please contact LNGC.Site.Grow@fluor.com
Introduction to Industrial Construction Bootcamp (IIC)
The bootcamp was designed to give individuals an opportunity to gain practical experience in an industrial construction setting to begin their path to an apprenticeship. The LNG Canada Project supports developing careers in the construction trades through mentoring, guidance, and the apprenticeship program.
The bootcamp supports and strengthens the LNG Canada Project apprenticeship model and helps develop future journeypersons in the region. JFJV delivers the program in partnership with the UA Piping Industry College of BC and SkilledTradesBC.
It is a four-week free-of-charge bootcamp that consists of practical projects in all types of weather. This mimics life on a real construction site and provides experiential learning and understanding. Participants are exposed to new skills, techniques, hand tools, and safe work practices in indoor and outdoor settings.
Additional learning includes information about the apprenticeship program and the culture and lifestyle of working on a large industrial construction site.
The Your Place program was launched by LNG Canada and Women Building Futures (WBF) in June 2019. The program concluded in June 2022 after hosting 13 cohorts with 122 women graduates.
The program aimed to attract, recruit, train, and employ women in the skilled construction trades to help create a diverse and inclusive workplace that includes young people, women, and Indigenous people in apprenticeship positions.
Your Place provided women with essential safety awareness and certifications, best practices for workplace readiness, theory, and hands-on training in preparation for entering the construction industry.
LNG Canada and JFJV invested in program participants by covering the cost of return airfare to Kitimat to take the four-week course, the training costs, meals, accommodations, transportation, and provided personal protective equipment.
