Highlights from Careers in the Trades 2019

posted in: Employers, Job Seekers | 0

March 4-8 was Careers in the Trades week. Throughout the week, we hosted eight events across southern Ontario, which drew hundreds of students and job seekers to learn about apprenticeships and training programs, hear from experienced trades people, and meet local employers. Thanks to the hard work from our branch staff and event partners, generous donations from sponsors, and the participation of our exhibitors these events were a success.

Thank you to all of the schools, students, job seekers and other attendees who participated in the event. We hope it was a valuable learning experience. If you would like more information about starting your career in the trades, find out how we can help.

Planning is already underway for Careers in the Trades 2020. If you would like to sign up to be an event partner, sponsor, presenter, or exhibitor, contact us today.

Thank you!

Thank you to our event partners, sponsors, and exhibitors. Without your hard work and support these events would not have been as successful.
