CLR Connector BC Infrastructure Benefits: Building A Better BC
British Columbia Infrastructure Benefits (BCIB) is the progressive construction employer on some of British Columbia’s largest infrastructure projects.
BCIB works with contractors, unions, and project owners to recruit and retain a diverse skilled construction trades workforce. Through the Province’s Community Benefit Agreement (CBA), BCIB hires underrepresented workers, including Indigenous peoples, women, 2SLGBTQ+ people, and locals. Safe, respectful and inclusive worksites are fostered through BCIB’s Respectful Onsite Initiative. All BCIB employees attend the training which includes Indigenous cultural competency training and JEDI (Justice. Equity. Diversity and Inclusion). BCIB also connects workers with training and apprenticeships to open doors to careers in the trades.
BCIB and its partners in industry and labour are building up a respectful and qualified workforce that will benefit BC’s construction sector for years to come. If you have questions about the CBA or working with BCIB, email firstname.lastname@example.org and follow along on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
We will feature specific projects and initiatives in future additions of the Connector. In the meantime, here is the map of the main projects under BCIB umbrella:
