Success Stories

“I have been working on starting my own small business in the renovating and repair of houses in my local community with a focus on installing new floors in a quality and cost-effective way for families of all income classes. As a newcomer to Canada with challenges of language and culture, I found that the program at Skills Training Centre helped me open up and made me feel welcomed in my new home."

“After completing the Intro to Construction Program, I had the opportunity to participate in an extended framing course run by the Skills Training Centre. From there I began working at a lumber yard where I used the skills learned in the program to perform daily tasks like safely operating a forklift and using a mitre saw. I am currently employed with the Local 27 Carpenters Union where I am constantly using and building upon the skills learned from the program.”

"The knowledge of tools and their names and uses, which I learned in the program, was very helpful in my employment. I never had to ask what a tool was, or what it was used for and this helped me immensely with initial confidence."
