The agreement includes a commitment from both groups to pursue projects in the province ranging from community planning and development to building community infrastructure and housing to developing power generation solutions.

"This agreement will support our efforts to develop capacity in training, jobs and construction opportunities which will give us a solid foundation for the future."
