We believe that properly skilled workers build and renovate quality homes and create better communities for all of us. Working with a variety of public and private industry partners, our goal is to ensure that there is an adequate supply of fully-trained and highly-skilled trades workers to meet the needs of our industry in Atlantic Canada.
Our multi-year Strategic Action Plan sets out specific goals, objectives and measurements in the following areas:
• Human Resource Planning Activities
• Attraction, Retention and Succession Activities
• Training Activities
• Cross-cutting Activities
We concentrate on researching and understanding our industry, our communities and our economy in order that we can project the demand for new home construction and renovation and prepare for the human resources needed.
We work to develop and refine industry processes for recruiting, training and retaining workers to match the anticipated skilled labour needs for the immediate and longer term.
With our various industry partners, we’ve compiled, analyzed and benchmarked the data on our sector. See the trends and developments in simple terms and understand what they could mean to you and your role in building a successful future.
