Engage with Trade Winds

It's a Win-Win-Win Situation

Increasingly, construction companies face a potential shortage of skilled labour and recognize that forming relationships with Indigenous organizations makes good business sense. By working effectively with Trade Winds, employers can directly access a young, rapidly growing, skilled, and readily available pre-apprenticeship work force.

Our Apprenticeship Retention Coordinators work with employers to bridge clients with employment opportunities. Get in touch today!
