Did You Know
Presently the construction industry is often overlooked as a viable career choice, predominantly due to a lack of understanding of the industry and the types of careers available. According to the Construction Sector Council, the construction industry in Canada is expected to rise by 360,000 workers by 2024. Meaning the construction industry is in great demand for dedicated employees and offers endless career opportunities.
We at the OCCA have various resources to enlighten students about the career opportunities. Our website www.myocca.ca provides valuable information about the construction industry, career options, trade apprenticeship, post-secondary education paths, high school programs, grants and scholarships and more.
