Helmets to Hardhats Canada (H2H)® is a national, Not-for-Profit program designed to assist currently serving as well as retired members of both the Regular Force and Reserve Force components of the Canadian Forces, including those with disabilities, with the transition process into a new and rewarding civilian career in the building and construction industry across Canada.

The program recognizes the fact that only a few of the current military occupations in the Canadian Forces will enable a direct and immediate placement as a qualified Journeyperson, and as such includes the opportunity for full apprenticeship training in any of the 60+ trade occupations in the building and construction industry provided they meet the basic entrance requirements for that particular trade.

Given that the economic situation varies across Canada from Province to Territory, interested candidates will be encouraged to give consideration to the trade for which they would be interested, where they would like to live, and where there exist opportunities to get underway. Of particular note is the fact that of the numerous trade occupations in the construction industry, over 50 of them have a "Red Seal" designation that allows them to work anywhere in Canada once they have achieved their Journeyperson qualification.
