Canadian Apprentice Forum   Why the Trades?

When people think about the skilled trades, several immediately spring to mind – electrician, plumber, welder, carpenter, for example. But opportunities in the skilled trades are much more extensive: from hairstylist to cook, painter to landscaper, automotive service technician to crane operator – and so many more. Learn more about the trades.
