LNG Canada awards two new contracts to local First Nation companies

KITIMAT, B.C. — The LNG Canada project in Kitimat has awarded contracts to Brock Kitamaat Services Limited Partnership and Gitga’at Waiward Industrial Ltd. Each contract has a term of six years.

Gitga’at Waiward Industrial will provide main industrial site services including mechanical, electrical and instrumentation support to maintenance and auxiliary support to projects and construction.

“This contract award represents a significant milestone for Gitga’at Waiward and characterizes a true partnership between Waiward Industrial LP, the Gitga’at Development Corporation, and the Gitga’at First Nation,” Waiward Industrial president and CEO Andy Brooks said in a press release.

Brock, in a joint venture with the Haisla Nation, will provide scaffolding, insulation and painting support along with other maintenance.

“Through extensive collaboration, we were able to develop an agreement with LNG Canada that included support from the Haisla First Nation and Brock Kitamaat Services. This relationship will deliver a sustaining benefit from the project that will transition into long-term prosperity for the nation and the Kitimat community, while providing LNG Canada with industry leading services made available through our established industry expertise built on a mindset grounded in safety and innovation,” Brock Canada president Joe Brickner said.

“It speaks to the commitments made by LNG Canada to use local contractors, aligning with economic reconciliation and the trust developed thus far. The economic success of the region’s First Nations is paramount to a robust regional economy,” Gitga’at Development Corporation CEO Joe Bevan added.
