Manitoba Construction Career Expo



Hands-On Career Experiences

Save the date! The next Manitoba Construction Career Expo is on May 10, 2017.

The Manitoba Construction Career Expo is an annual event held at Red River Exhibition Place, designed to encourage students in Grade 9 to 12 to explore their future in construction. The exciting and extremely popular Expo features an entirely interactive experience with hands-on demonstrations in over 30 skilled trades in construction, including masonry, carpentry, roofing, concrete finishing, electrical wiring and painting, among others.

Students also have the chance to interact with skilled journeypeople and learn more about Manitoba’s construction industry from construction companies and trade associations.

Together with our partners and supporters, WCA makes it easy for schools and teachers to bring their students to the Expo. With registration, we provide lunch at the event for students and teachers, a complimentary T-shirt, reimbursement to cover the cost of substitute teachers, and reimbursement to cover the cost of transportation, up to $500.

With Manitoba’s construction climate creating a wealth of career opportunities, and the current shortage of skilled tradespeople, now is the time to introduce students to the vast, profitable, and rewarding careers in construction!
