The Ontario Construction Secretariat (OCS) is holding a three day, hands on expo that is aimed at students from grades 7-12. The expo will attempt to convince youths and their parents that a university degree is only an option of many when it comes to building a successful career.
This expo will take place April 8-10 at the Mainway Recreation Centre, 4015 Mainway Dr.
The OCS Chief Executive Officer, Sean Strickland had the following words to say in a recent press release:
“We are facing a shortage of skilled labour in Ontario, which means students who learn a trade have excellent prospects of quickly establishing themselves in a viable, sustainable and honourable career”
“A skilled-labour shortage is a real threat to our long-term economic health.”
As we continue to feel the effects of a shrinking skilled trades workforce, more and more organizations are allocating their budgets to host events and campaigns. With government programs, expos like this one, and the motivated staff at The Talent Group, we can curve the projected decline in skilled trades workers.
