Study says 11,000 jobs linked to Energy East
CALGARY - TransCanada Corporation says an independent report predicts that more than 10,000 full-time jobs will be directly supported during the development and construction phase of the proposed Energy East pipeline to New Brunswick.
The study by Deloitte & Touche says there will be 1,000 full-time jobs supported by the $12-billion pipeline once it begins service.
TransCanada (TSX:TRP) has proposed the Energy East project to deliver crude from western Canada as far east as Saint John, N.B.
TransCanada has scheduled a media briefing to discuss details of the Deloitte study, commissioned as part of the company's efforts to win support for the project.
