Trade Pathways

An Alberta Construction Workforce Initiative

About The Program

Trade Pathways is an Alberta workforce program that aims to connect unemployed and underemployed young Albertans with Alberta construction companies through paid work experience placements. Multiple placements will allow a program participant to develop the varied practical skills and experience required to begin a successful path towards trade apprenticeship. Program participants will receive training and support prior to and during their placements to help them to overcome common barriers that exist when beginning a career in construction.
