Fuel Your Career at the Co-op Refinery Complex. Our workforce of over 1000 employees operate a world-class refinery utilizing cutting-edge technology to produce 130,000 barrels of refined petroleum products per day. With an annual production capacity of 6.8 billion litres we are one of Canada’s largest refineries, distributing our products to more than 780 retail gas bar and cardlock locations from Vancouver Island to Northwestern Ontario. Our focus is on fueling our people to lead our industry in safety, reliability and sustainability. Join the Co-op Refinery Complex and help us, as We Fuel Western Canada.

FCL invites applications for Journeyperson Electricians for approximately 3 to 7 weeks for the upcoming maintenance Turnaround in our Co-op Refinery Complex located in Regina, Saskatchewan.

Turnaround is a massive annual project in which major portions of the Refinery are shut down for maintenance and inspections that can only be performed when the Refinery is inactive. Because parts of the Refinery are not operating during Turnaround, it is an intense period where work must safely and correctly be completed in a relatively short timeframe.

A successful Turnaround requires properly trained and skilled personnel, strict adherence to safety protocol, and excellent teamwork between all workers. Turnaround sets the CRC up for success, helping it to operate safely, reliability, and more efficiently. Ultimately, Turnaround helps enhance the CRC’s ability to Fuel Western Canada.
