In less than a year, since the start of construction of the new Mills Memorial Hospital in Terrace, more than 80 regional suppliers and contractors, with the majority being local, have secured worked on the site.

A list of the regional contractors to date has been added to this MMH Let's Talk site under Documents and under the Links sections.

Work contracts have been diverse, from trucking to equipment rental, air quality monitoring to food and building supplies, paving to flagging, steel work to geotechnical services, and more.

Workers on site

While the number of workers on site fluctuate regularly depending on what work is being completed, currently there are approximately 130 workers are on site.

The percentage of local and regional workers also fluctuates. Currently, just over 40% of workers on site are from the region. In November 2021, it was more than 60%.

The majority of the workers from the Terrace area are employed by PacAlta, a subsidiary company of PCL. Others are working for subcontractors on site.

Just under 20% of workers on site are apprentices. And 5% of workers on site identify as Indigenous.

As the project progresses, the number of out-of-town workers on site is expected to increase as more specialized skills, not always locally available locally, are needed.

Work and contract opportunities

Before construction began, PCL participated in networking sessions with local and regional First Nations and companies to explore the possibilities of working together. PCL and their subcontractors continue to, advertise employment opportunities on and in various platforms such as Linkedin, Kijiji, and regional newspapers.

Businesses interested in working on the Mills Memorial Project site are encouraged to contact PCL with information about services they could offer.
