Ontario Construction News staff writer

With the construction industry facing a labour crisis and no national, Angela Coldwell, Jen Hancock and Tim Coldwell launched Honour the Work, a source for interactive resources and educational material, connecting Canadians to fulfilling training and careers in the skilled trades.

The website includes dozens of videos that share real-life experiences and Ontario Construction News is sharing videos each week to highlight the stories of construction workers. Along with free programs for children, high school students, adults and educators across Canada, the site offers a curated collection of tools and resources to help inform and inspire meaningful career choices.

A program targeted for elementary schools helps children to imagine working in the skilled trades.

“Why do we need to share skilled trades careers in elementary school?” Angela Coldwell asks. “By igniting curiosity and offering exposure, we pave the way for future generations to pursue these rewarding opportunities.”

In this video, individuals share their experiences about getting into the skilled trades.
