Apprenticeship program developed for veterans

Federal website helps veterans and Armed Forces personnel find transition jobs

Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo MP Cathy McLeod recently announced the launch of the Helmets to Hardhats Canada website.

This website is dedicated to helping Canada’s veterans and men and women in uniform find jobs in the building and construction industry, as they transition to civilian life.

“Canada’s veterans and service men and women are known around the world for their skills, qualities and expertise,” says McLeod.

“Helmets to Hardhats Canada will help to connect our service personnel with quality apprenticeships and well paid, rewarding career opportunities they deserve after serving our country with dignity and pride.”
