Trades Week

Trades Week

What I thought about the trades has been completely changed through this experience.

Trades Week

On May 17-21, 2021, we’ll dedicate an entire week to spotlighting the people, the organizations, and the companies that keep our world moving.

As a highlight to the week and to assist families with career exploration, on May 19 & 20, we’ll host Ontario’s largest virtual skilled trades expo for all students in grades 9-12.

Why should you attend?

Engaging • Interactive • Fun

Packed with Resources & Prizes



#HerPower Tools Program

In partnership with WFS Ltd. and Milwaukee Tool, the #HerPower Tools program is designed to encourage young women to pursue a youth apprenticeship or post-secondary skilled trades program or apprenticeship. Students can apply for the chance to win one of 100 tool bags filled with job essentials (a $150 value!).

There’s not a single answer to this as your trades journey can go in many directions and your eventual journeyperson status can lead to an endless list of possibilities! To celebrate #TradesWeek, we spoke to tradespeople about where they started and where their certification has taken them:
