Through our employment opportunities for students, hands-on experience helps to pass on the skills, knowledge and training needed in the fields and trades of our sector. In 2015, we gave 18 students the opportunity to get meaningful employment at Utilities Kingston in a variety of positions, including communication, information systems, procurement technologies, water and sanitation services, billing and credit, and hydroelectric and commercial services. At the end of each month, the work program updates a list of collective agreements expiring this year, which include 500 or more employees in provincial regions and 100 or more employees in federal jurisdiction. Employees tell us that Kingston Utilities is a great place to do a great job.
