Implementing Adaptive Phased Management will involve hundreds of direct, indirect and induced jobs each year. These jobs will involve scientists, engineers, professionals, tradespeople, and other workers in the siting region for many decades.
The number of jobs generated in the siting area will depend in part on the location of the repository, and the capacity of the communities in the siting area, economic region and host province to support the project.
We will explore with communities in the area the need for specific investments that can alter the amount of economic benefits captured in the area. For example, we could make investments in such areas as labour training, supporting infrastructure, business incubation, strategic hiring, and procurement.
As part of our procurement process, we seek to maximize our use of local suppliers from municipalities, and First Nation and Métis communities in areas engaged in the site selection process.
