Janet Holder

Project Leader of Northern Gateway pipeline and proud British Columbian

A one-time competitive weight lifter, a chemical engineer, scuba diver, dog lover, and a leader in Canada's corporate world, Janet Holder is a proud British Columbian who defies stereotypes.

Janet’s unconventional spirit was forged in a family that immigrated to Northern BC at the turn of the last century to work in the lumber industry. And it’s that spirit that brought Janet back to Prince George from Toronto to lead the proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline.

From her home-base in Prince George, Janet isn’t one to sit at the office. Getting out and around the province to hear directly from British Columbians is the most important part of her job.

For now, that is Janet’s main focus. But when not on the road, you will likely find her with her husband Neal hiking with their dogs and enjoying the outdoors.

Northern Gateway Will Create Jobs While Protecting the Environment

The truth is that Northern Gateway is important to both British Columbia's and Canada's future. It will open up new markets for our most valuable resource, creating thousands of jobs and new opportunities for British Columbians and Canadians. And, by incorporating leading measures for safety and environmental protection, we are designing a project that delivers these benefits while also protecting our environment.
