Our Mission

Helmets to Hardhats (H2H) is a registered not-for-profit organization dedicated to assisting veterans who are transitioning from military service, and active reservists, into well paid, highly-skilled second careers in construction and related industries.

In partnership with construction trade unions, governments and industry, H2H streamlines the pathways to apprenticeship, advanced training and career placement opportunities in the construction industry with registered employers who support the men and women who have served our country.

Our Vision

Helmets to Hardhats aims to harness the valuable skillsets — dedication, loyalty, leadership and teamwork — that veterans and reservists gain through their military experience and transfer those assets into second careers in the skilled trades to the mutual benefit of Canada’s unionized construction industries along with the veterans and reservists themselves.

Partnering with Canada’s unionized apprenticeship and training systems along with the fairest and safest employers in the construction industry, our goal is to build lasting connections between veterans and reservists seeking rewarding second careers in Canada’s highly skilled construction and related industries and employers in those trades.
