BC is Growing
BC is growing. Hundreds of large-scale construction projects, and thousands of smaller ones, worth over $195 billion, are planned for every part of the province – with roughly 60% of them slated for in BC’s northern regions. That’s a lot of work. And an incredible opportunity. But in order for us to take advantage of it we need to overcome a major challenge.
Skilled workers are in short supply
This guide is here to help construction employers connect with a group of people who have the right experience and expertise, who can mentor and apprentice younger workers, and are hardworking and entrepreneurial. Best of all, they already live right here in BC. They are new Canadians, new British Columbians. They’ve come a long way to be here.
