Building Trades Workers Matter.

Building Our Economy

When workers receive fair wages their families are able to contribute to a strong and stable economy.

14%

of Canada’s GDP is accounted for by construction

Apprentices training to work in union trades can receive bursaries, grants, scholarships and mentorship programs to assist them in their training

Every job in construction produces 7 spin-off jobs in other sectors of the economy

Building Communities

To continue to build communities, we need highly skilled and trained workers, governed by strict labour laws and unions to guarantee quality and safety.

Unions provide programs for under-represented and disadvantaged groups, including women, First Nations and new Canadians

Training programs for unionized apprenticeships are designed to meet industry needs.
