On Monday, November 13, our Welcoming Communities (Newcomer Services) program hosted a Skilled Trades Expo for over 150 secondary students.
The Passport to Career Success event gave these new Canadians an opportunity to experience hands-on activities and hear from professionals in the construction sector and other skilled trades.
Students rolled up their sleeves, sharpened their creative skills, and discussed continuing education and career paths with trained professionals.
By helping students learn about future career and employment options, we create opportunities for a better future and easier settlement into Canadian society.
