IMG_0605

On May 13, 2015, more than 1,700 high school students converged at Red River Exhibition Place for the annual Manitoba Construction Career Expo.

Industry supporters came out in droves, and provided students the opportunity to try various careers including carpentry, electrical, welding, just to name a few.

The industry recognizes that with the looming skilled labour shortage, we need to take an active part in promoting a rewarding career in the trades and show the next generation the value, benefits, and fulfillment of working in the industry.
