SKILLED TRADES

Are you interested in a good-paying occupation that has a lot of opportunities? Not the type of person who likes to sit at a desk all day? Consider a career in the trades!

Research shows that when it comes to wages, job security, and employment satisfaction, those who complete an apprenticeship in the trades have:

  • Better employment outcomes, both immediately and several years after being certified
  • Better earning potential – in the short and longer term
  • Higher levels of job satisfaction and job security

If you are interested in becoming a tradesperson, you can visit the apprenticeship office serving Peel and Halton regions for more information.
