Community Focus

At Pacific Canbriam Energy, we understand our operations have a significant impact on local stakeholders, Rights Holders and their communities. We engage early and often with individuals and groups to build trust and create meaningful relationships, and to fully understand how we can best address the unique needs of the community.

Working together to create a positive, significant impact

We take every opportunity to support local events and participate in initiatives important to the community. We invest in initiatives that support education, wellbeing, culture, and the environment, and we have partnered with 20 local organizations to build healthier and resilient communities across our operating areas.

We engage early, and often

Through transparency and open dialogue, we strive to create alignment within the communities where we work. We conduct community engagement and consultation regarding project risks and impacts that allow for broad participation and meaningful input from local stakeholders. Our annual plans are developed with the participation of local communities through inclusive consultation. PCE provides financial contributions and in-kind support that benefit all communities and residents based on the unique needs of our stakeholders.

We invest in local talent and business

Developing a skilled local workforce, reducing transient labour needs and participating in active partnerships with local communities is central to our business practice. We believe that identifying opportunities for community education and training is an essential part of ensuring long-term, equitable and inclusive sustainable development. PCE supports the recruitment, retention and advancement of qualified individuals and local businesses, and supports economic development of vendors in our operating areas.

Northern Lights Awards & Scholarships

Along with our industry partners operating in the Montney region, we have taken part in Indigenous operator training initiatives, joint venture partnership job training, as well as providing scholarship opportunities at Northern Lights College in Dawson Creek, Fort St. John, and Chetwynd, B.C. Competency training initiatives ensure that the Indigenous communities develop the skills to compete and participate economically in development projects. We are proud to sponsor six awards for students attending programs at the Fort St. John and Chetwynd campuses of Northern Lights College. Students enrolled in trades, University Arts and Sciences and the helping professions are eligible for the awards which are administered by the NLC Foundation.

Additionally, PCE supports Northern Lights College by investing in the NLC Foundation, which provides scholarships to students and the training facilities necessary to support a modern learning environment. Learn more about Northern Lights College.
