Our certificate acknowledges our efforts in the Fort St. John Indigenous Work Experience Program, which focused on providing real-life work experience and developmental opportunities for members of our Indigenous communities. This program is one of the many ways we’re making advances in our commitment to increase the participation and advancement of Indigenous employment and training.
