Janine North, the CEO of the Northern Development Initiative Trust, was one of the speakers at a recent B.C. Construction Roundtable focused on the opportunities and challenges for the industry in northern British Columbia.

North pointed to emerging industries such as LNG as well as established industries like mining and forestry as areas of growth for northern B.C., and said that even airport development is getting a boost from the increasing demand for workers in remote areas.

She also said efforts are being made with training and inclusion of non-traditional sectors of the workforce to make sure there are sufficient numbers of workers to address increased labour needs in the north.
