Logan Aird is a Journeyperson Power Line Technician at BC Hydro from the Saulteau First Nations in British Columbia. He started his career with BC Hydro through their Youth Hires Program and found his true calling in working as a Power Line Technician because he’s an adrenaline junkie and with the nature of his job, he’s always on the go. He could be working on an underground line in a new subdivision or be up on a mountainside! For Logan, it’s all worth it because he knows he’s helping to supply clean energy to people in BC.
More mentors will be announced shortly!
