OCCA is a non-profit organization, established in 2006, to raise career opportunity awareness in the Construction Industry. OCCA's mandate is to promote careers in construction outlining studies, skills, education, and the pathways available.
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 increase by 360,000 workers by 2024. There is great demand for dedicated employees, and the industry offers endless career opportunities.
OCCA has various resources to enlighten students about the career opportunities available. Our website provides valuable information about the construction industry, career options, trade apprenticeship, post-secondary education paths, high school programs, grants, scholarships and more.
We look forward to working with you and speaking to your students about the career opportunities available in the Construction Industry! Contact us using the request form below.
