committing to progress in a spirit of mutual collaboration and reconciliation
We respectfully acknowledge the history of these lands, citizens, and cultures, while committing to progress in a spirit of mutual collaboration and reconciliation.
Promoting the development of future tradespeople from Indigenous communities is crucial for fostering equity, inclusion, and economic empowerment across the communities we help to build. By championing the training and employment of Indigenous tradespeople, we are committed to ensure that their voices, skills, and cultural heritage are valued and represented.
This focus is both strategic and meaningful in that it helps to address workforce shortages in the construction industry, while also promoting reconciliation, preserving traditional knowledge, and building stronger relationships based on mutual respect.
Where is the future Workforce?
- Fastest growing population in Canada
- Higher propensity to choose the construction industry
- Inclusion is critical - some remote population have restricted access to technology, training, and transportation
