Welcome to the newest edition of ONEC Advantage – our newsletter that highlights the most exciting news, achievements, and information from ONEC. We hope this quick summary provides you with a deeper insight into the projects we do and how we can support you.
In the last few months, ONEC has continued with our focus on managed growth and efficient project execution. Recently, our board and management team have reworded our purpose statement and overall strategy so that it better reflects this focus and our current market targets.
Our new purpose statement is as follows:
Continually improving the industrial facilities of our business partners through effective project delivery, maintenance, and innovation.
While our board and management team has been busy formulating this new statement and coinciding strategy, our Operations Teams have been busy improving many facilities around Western Canada and the United States.
Some of these improvement projects include:
- Several coal to gas powerplant conversions that have greatly improved commercial viability of the facilities as well as cutting their CO2 emissions in half!
- Various major maintenance projects (shutdowns and turnarounds) that ensure our clients’ facilities’ continued and efficient operation.
- Support role for our business partners as a reliable team player providing accurate surveying, mechanical, insulating, scaffolding and electrical services.
- Engineering and technical support projects for new projects including solar facilities, terminals, and buildings.
We are honoured to work alongside our clients and business partners in the execution of these projects and look forward to working together to complete more projects safely, efficiently, on budget, and on time.
Enjoy the summer!
– Denis Wiart, CEO

ONEC Northwest BC and WorkBC Host Pre-Employment Training Program
ONEC Northwest BC Operations collaborated with WorkBC to deliver a pre-employment training program to ready local residents for employment in the construction industry with a primary focus on entry level employment with ONEC.
Participants had the opportunity to learn all about ONEC’s various disciplines with a focus on construction and logistics. They also learned important job-readiness skills such as resume writing, ONEC-specific safety requirements, SMART goals, and conflict resolution and communication. Plus, they got to hear from several community leaders who were guest speakers.
The program was a great success and won a great deal of positive feedback in the community and surrounding industry.
Here are some comments of our participants:
“The program sparked interest in myself to specialize in a branch of construction. I was unsure of what to do to advance in the field, now I know and I’m taking steps towards it.”
“I would most definitely recommend this program to others.”
“I have been telling my family and friends about the program. I think this has been an amazing approach by ONEC and have never seen a company be so pro-active in accessing potential employees, as well as providing pre-training and encouragement… The whole overall experience has been great.”
“I have really enjoyed this workshop. I really appreciate and value all the information and feedback I have gotten here and look forward to seeing where this ultimately leads for me. – Thank You!”
“It’s been a great experience, getting the opportunity to know an employer to this degree; first, from a first impression introduction to daily, with all the great feedback, and tips I’ve received! It’s been a privilege, thank you so much.”
“This program has definitely exceeded my expectations. I learned more than I thought I would have.”
“I would totally recommend this program to others!”
We are very happy that the program was so well received and look forward to working with the individuals who participated in the near future!
