• Canada will have nearly 1 million job openings
from 2003-2015 in the skilled trades sector but
continues to have a serious shortage of new,
skilled tradespeople to fill in the retiring Baby
Boomer gap.
• In the next 20 years, 40% of new jobs in
Canada will be in skilled trades and
technologies. This is great news for those
people looking for jobs that aren’t typical, that
are constantly evolving in new industries and
that require constant development.
Why consider a career in Trades?
