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.
