Visual: Visual shifts to a man welding in full protective gear. Then to two men in hardhats at a steel plant looking at large paper. Visual then shifts back to the same man speaking directly to camera.

Kirk MacKinnon: So in order to grow the company, we need employees we just have not had the available pool of employees here on P.E.I. to help us with those growth expectations. So as part of that, we have reached out to the Atlantic Immigration Program, and we currently have 12 applications in and we’re hoping to do more.
