We work closely with Indigenous communities and training providers to make trades training accessible to rural and urban communities.
We are helping to get more women and underrepresented groups in the trades, by telling their story and supporting key programs.
Our Youth Trade Programs allow students to get started in a trade while they’re still in high school.
