Peguis First Nation is proud to begin the process of training 15 local band members to participate in the Geothermal Trades Training Program. This program is a community partnership involving Peguis Band, C.P. Construction L.P, Peguis Training & Employment, Public Works, and also Peguis Housing. The 5-week training program, which begins today, will consist of installation and maintenance of geothermal for 50 units within Peguis First Nation and 50 units within Fisher River Cree Nation. Successful completion of this training program may lead to a long-term employment opportunity for individuals.
“C.P. Construction is pleased to be part of this pilot project that will benefit the community of Peguis in so many positive ways,” said Glen Cochrane, General Manager of C.P. Construction L.P., “It also gives our local members the opportunity to expand their horizons as far as employment goes, seeing this project is recognized internationally.”
