Forestry Related Jobs On The Way

Workers in Prince George and Mackenzie benefit from more than $1.56 million through the Job Opportunities Program for pine beetle mitigation, hazard tree management, seed collection and trail maintenance.

“The Job Opportunities Program helps out people who need it most, our displaced workers,” says Prince George-Mackenzie MLA Pat Bell. “Mackenzie is an outdoor recreation playground that these 68 jobs will help to maintain, thereby reducing the risk of wildfires in our forests and increasing safety for our people."

The project will create 22 jobs.
