Skilled trades will help us come back stronger

Since the beginning of the pandemic, our primary concern has been the health and safety of our over 100,000+ tradespeople who can’t work from home. The industry pivoted quickly to develop new safety practices and protocols from the ground up, not only to protect workers and their families, but to demonstrate that the industry could work safely through the pandemic without straining government health resources. 

Our industry is strong and resilient. While the pandemic isn’t behind us, skilled trades women and men can apply their hard-won knowledge, working with other businesses and industries to safely lead our economy’s reopening and recovery. Investments in the kinds of critical infrastructure that Community Benefits Agreements build, will help create jobs, roads and bridges that will create the conditions for British Columbia to come back stronger.
