I’m delighted to inform you that Veterans Affairs Canada has begun to implement the new Education and Training benefit as of 01 April 2018! This applies to all veterans who’ve completed six or more years of service. The benefit can be applied towards apprenticeships/vocational training (as well as college & university courses), and to provide a living allowance for those who need it. Finally...this will enable many more vets to undertake the initial stage of their training as a pathway into the trades.

Interested in a career in Construction?

Helmets to Hardhats (H2H® ) Canada is a partnership with Canada's Building Trades Unions, their many Employers across Canada, and Government stakeholders. The H2H sister program originated in the United States in 2003, and has been highly successful for America. H2H® Canada will follow a similar model, but is focused on career opportunities in Canada for anyone who has served (or is currently serving and looking to transition to a civilian career) in either the Regular or Reserve Force Components of the Canadian Forces.  flag The program offers apprenticeship opportunities to achieve a journeyperson qualification in the building and construction trade of one's choice, as well as potential opportunities in other management positions within this industry, all leading to a promising new career.

    "Our members who are Veterans, have had great success on our projects due to the soft skills they bring with them. Their work ethic and understanding of why an order is given and why it needs to be followed, sets them above most tradesmen on the worksite. These soft skills are valued by our contractors, as they enable the contractor to reach productivity levels and production goals ahead of schedule."
