Our annual Apprentice Contest took place May 6, 2023, where top apprentices from each trade had the opportunity to compete for prizes and notoriety. We had great sponsorship from so many of our signatory contractors, providing us with the ability to present some fantastic prizes. This contest would not be possible with the help and support of our contractors, suppliers, members, and pre-apprentices.

The week of March 5th was Women in Construction week and it featured International Women's Day. It presented us with the opportunities to highlight all the initiatives and work of women in the industry, promote the opportunities that are available to women in construction, celebrate women's achievements, recognize challenges, and focus greater attention on women's rights.
