Hakai Electrical Apprentice, Jamie Poole-Sing, Recognized by NIC

Female NIC Electrician alum working on renewable energy solutions in BC

February 9, 2021

Congratulations to our teammate Jamie, who has been highlighted by North Island College (NIC) for her work in renewable energy. Jamie has been working with Hakai for 1.5 years, is in her 4th year at NIC, and will be a Red Seal Electrician when she graduates.

“NIC Electrician Apprenticeship alumna Jamie Poole-Sing found her calling in renewable energy thanks to her trades training at NIC.

“Becoming an electrician was always something that interested Poole-Sing, but it took time for her to make the jump to start her training… As Poole-Sing pursued her Red Seal, local company Hakai Energy Solutions came onto her radar. Hakai is a local electrical contractor that creates clean energy systems to reduce dependency on either hydro or diesel-generated electricity while lowering energy costs. They specialize in solar and hybrid projects for residential, commercial and municipal properties. Recent projects include the new CVRD building in Courtenay, BC’s largest remote hybrid solar energy system on Harbledown Island and the Central Saanich Firehall.”
