Tomorrow’s Trades is a workforce development pilot program associated with the Provincial Building and Construction Trades Council of Ontario. Its focus is to recruit and prepare candidates that are traditionally underrepresented in the skilled trades, such as women, Indigenous youth, Black youth, persons with disabilities, newcomers, youth at-risk, returning veterans, reservists, cadets, and those from racialized communities for application to apprenticeships and careers in the skilled trades.
Tomorrow’s Trades is hoping to build pathways and remove barriers for those pursuing a career in construction with the skilled trades by creating a program to find and recruit motivated individuals and equip them with the Construction Sector Essential Skills they need to become high-quality apprentices. Tomorrow’s Trades will recruit and select candidates based on assessments and interviews and successful candidates participate in their pre-apprenticeship style program where the program will aim to ensure they are job-ready by the time they apply to the workforce.
