VIDEO: The Opportunity to Come Home

The oil and natural gas industry gave Elizabeth Collins to return home to Newfoundland and Labrador.

Like many Newfoundlanders and Labradorians, Elizabeth Collins moved away to find work opportunities. Eventually, after six years in Calgary building a resume in the oil and natural gas industry, she and her husband began thinking about coming home to raise a family. Despite her valuable work experience, would she have to settle for a lesser career path?

For Elizabeth and other young professionals in the prime of their working lives, a strong oil and natural gas sector in the province means having the best of both worlds: a rewarding career with a range of opportunities for advancement and the chance for their children to grow up in a place their parents call home.
