Contracting and Vendor Opportunities
During construction, Prince Rupert Gas Transmission will provide contracting opportunities to qualified indigenous businesses, local contractors and suppliers along the pipeline route.
TransCanada has three roles in the building of Prince Rupert Gas Transmission:
- Plan, design and operate the pipeline
- Select prime contractors to construct the pipeline
- Oversee the prime contractors and the construction process to ensure safety standards and specifications are met
The majority of the employment opportunities will be provided through the selected prime contractors who are highly-qualified firms with experience in large pipeline construction. Prime contractors will be required to provide local and indigenous participation plans prior to selection and regular reporting on local and indigenous participation through construction.
Prince Rupert Gas Transmission will meet with indigenous communities, educational institutions, business organizations and economic development agencies throughout British Columbia to identify capable and qualified local businesses. These businesses will then be invited to bid on project work.

Participants from indigenous communities along PRGT’s route will receive on-the-job training at an operating compressor station in Alberta.
