    Last week, five students and their instructor from the Engineering Certificate program at Coast Mountain College were fortunate to get a tour of the Mills Memorial Hospital Replacement project site in Terrace.

    "The students were excited to tour such a large and complex project that will play a key role in the future of our community," said course instructor Stuart Toop.

    "The staff and engineers onsite took a large amount of time out of their busy day to show us around the project and answer all our questions," he continued. "PCL has offered amazing support to the Engineering Program at Coast Mountain College."

    PCL recently made a $5,000 donation to the Engineers and Geoscientists of BC's new scholarship program aimed to help eliminate educational and employment gaps with Indigenous and non-Indigenous students.

    With the support of Northern Health, PCL is engaging schools and students in Terrace in a Tree Legacy Programinitiative to repopulate trees at the Mills Memorial Replacement Project site, once the build is complete.

    Starting in May 2022, participating students will be provided a tree plug with responsibility to nurture the plug in preparation for the 2024 planting season.

    PCL has arranged for local business, Uplands Nursery, to provide local tree species to symbolize the history and culture of the region.

    In a follow up to Earth Day (April 22), the program kicked off its first presentations to students at Thornhill Elementary School and Centennial Christian School on April 28. PCL will present to Ecole Mountainview on May 3 and Uplands on May 5.

    The holiday season is a time many of us come together and show our true generosity.

    This is definitely the case for a number construction workers on the Mills Memorial Hospital site who joined forces this past month to raise a significant amount of money for Terrace's Salvation Army Food Bank.

    Northern Health would like to thank workers from PCL Constructors Westcoast Inc, as well as several of their contractors on site - Modern Niagara, Houle Electric and IDL Projects Inc - for raising funds to help make things better for those who need right now in the Terrace community .

    This is one of many contributions the workers and companies have made to our community and region so far, including and most importantly, to those most in need.

    Danielle Morrison of Terrace, who works as an Administrative Assistant for PCL on the Mills Memorial Project, gives a thumbs up as she hands over a large donation to the Food Bank.

    Last week, some of the PCL crew who are in town building the new hospital, joined members of the Terrace Beautification Society, along with local high-school students, to help clean up around Market Estates, a seniors housing complex on Davis Avenue in Terrace. The three PCL employees spent some time pulling weeds and chatting with locals.

    The Mills Memorial Hospital project will take approximately four years to complete and PCL is keen to get know and be involved in the community during their time here.

    Read the Terrace Standard article about the youth volunteering that night along with the PCL employees.

    Lots of weeds to pick.

    Working hard.

    A well deserved break.

    Lots of great volunteers.
