This video debunks several myths associated with a career in the trades and provides further insights into this diverse, rewarding, and growing field. We spoke to employers all over Canada and the message is clear, there's a shortage of skilled tradespeople and jobs are available from coast to coast. An apprenticeship is the best way to get your start in the trades. You'll get paid on-the-job experience combined with technical training. Government grants are available to get you started. It's time to explore the possibilities. For more information about apprenticeships in the skilled trades, visit youth.gc.ca/apprenticeships.
