“There are fishing rods lying around the office, and neighbours drop off freshly baked bread on our doorstep. We camp through summer and ski through winter. There’s no better place to raise our daughter – Kitimat is unlike any other place I’ve ever been!”
Careers in Northern BC have never looked so good, with jobs in civil engineering, surveying, geomatics, and environmental management in the small town of Kitimat. With the recently announced $40-billion LNG Canada project, the largest privately-funded project in Canadian history, we anticipate a busy time ahead of us here at McElhanney. For the right candidates, we offer relocation support, professional development opportunities, a robust benefits program, and projects that are equal parts challenging and rewarding.
Kitimat is a community of 9,000, and the small town lies in a valley in the Coast Mountains in Northern BC. It is a compelling town to call home for families and adventure-seekers alike, who are looking to grow their career in a place that offers so much opportunity for families and professional growth.
