The Trades


There are 50 designated trades in Alberta from Gasfitters and Plumbers to Heavy Equipment Operators, Welders, Cooks and Hairstylists; there truly is a job for everyone within The Trades. To enter a trade you must embark on an apprenticeship. This will see you complete a program of training which is a combination of both on-the-job training and work experience, 80%, and formal technical training which is provided at a post-secondary institution. With The Conference Board of Canada estimating that there will be a skills shortage of 1 million trade’s people in the next 20 years and with an employment rate of 100% for graduated apprentices, this really is an excellent time to enter a trade.
