We’re training the next generation of skilled tradespeople
Trades & Diversity Training Program (TDTP)
We offer a 3-month paid program (40 hours per week) for people within marginalized groups that are underrepresented in the trades (such as Women, Black, Indigenous, People of Colour, and Newcomers to Canada).
This program is designed as pre-employment training and focuses on giving its participants the tools they need to succeed. They are taught employment readiness skills, and learn everything from demolition, framing, insulation, drywall, flooring, tiling, budgeting, meal planning, and more. Most importantly, they get real on-the-job construction training in a supportive and supervised environment.
Trainees will receive support from our team who will work with them to create an individualized employment plan and pathways that will lead them to a prosperous career in the trades. We help to identify and support participants through any barriers that could hinder their training or employment such as transportation, mental health, housing or food security.
