The project is expected to require capital investment in excess of $4 billion CAD, representing one of the largest renewable energy investments in Canadian history.
The project is expected to create 250–300 construction jobs, including equipment operators, electricians, labourers, environmental monitors, and more. Pattern Energy is an equal opportunity employer, and we focus on diversity, equity and inclusion in our workforce in all phases of a project.
We prioritize hiring and sourcing materials locally when possible. Once operational, permanent staff will operate and maintain the facility.
The Cape Shore Ecological Centre of Excellence, to be funded and formed in connection with the project, will devote resources and expertise to the protection of species and biodiversity in the Cape Shore and Placentia Bay region. Pattern Energy will work with regional and global environmental experts to promote the protection of the local ecosystem and advance important research in impact mitigation technologies.
Pattern Energy is committed to engagement, consultation and partnerships with Indigenous communities. We seek opportunities to work together with Indigenous peoples to share knowledge, create employment and contracting opportunities, and explore ways in which Indigenous communities can directly benefit from our projects.
