Fraudulent Job Offers and Postings

There have been recent incidents with organizations falsely pretending to recruit on behalf of Ovintiv, Encana or Newfield, or by people claiming to work for Ovintiv, Encana or Newfield. These unauthorized organizations and individuals use the Ovintiv, Encana and Newfield names and logos in emails, on forms and in job postings in an attempt to solicit up-front fees from interested job seekers. Please note these communications or job postings are fraudulent.

They do not come from Ovintiv, Encana or Newfield, and are not associated with the Company’s recruitment processes. Ovintiv does not send out unsolicited requests for personal information. Authentic job openings will always be posted on the Ovintiv.com/Careers site. Ovintiv never requires applicants to submit money to Ovintiv or outside recruiters in order to pay for travel, immigration or other expenses. Ovintiv emails always end in “@ovintiv.com” and Encana emails should always end in “@encana.com.” Any email using “Ovintiv” or “Encana” in a different format is not authentic. Any correspondence or email using Newfield in any format is not legitimate.
