Skilled Trades: Have your voice heard

The Construction Industry Training Network* (CITN) has been asked by the Province of British Columbia’s Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training to consult construction industry stakeholders to identify and prioritize key labour market issues facing the sector.  Consultations include four (4) regional meetings as well as telephone interviews during Autumn 2015.

The consultations and interviews are an opportunity to identify labour market issues that affect your ability to build great projects, now and in the future.

  • Reduced/limited worker mobility
  • Issues faced by smaller employers in accessing government programs
  • A lack of information on training quality and effectiveness

Your company or organization may well face other issues that affect your ability to build great projects. The upcoming consultation is an opportunity to refine, validate and prioritize the issues that most need to be addressed, and create a common, industry-led basis for tackling them.  If you want to be a part of one of these sessions or provide input, please contact Rina Popat at CHBA BC, education@chbabc.org.

For more information on the CITN and this Labour Market Partnership initiative please contact CITN Coordinator Kerry Vital at kerry.vital@trainingnetwork.ca or 1-844-393-2339.
