Trades Quick Facts:
- Many trades are highly technical and are continuously evolving: the right kind of challenge.
- A trade career can lead to supervision, management, the professions and business entrepreneurship.
- Most tradespeople can write a 'Red Seal' exam and earn an Interprovincial Standards Red Seal on their Journeyman Certificate. This lets them work in most Canadian provinces and territories.
- While some trades occasionally are affected by temporary economic slowdowns, the aging workforce means an overall increase in future demand for skilled tradespeople.
