About STEP.

Since 2006, the Skilled Trades Employment Program (STEP) has focused on finding motivated, trained, and ready-to-work candidates for construction employers with jobs to fill in British Columbia. 

The STEP team can help by:

  • Providing pre and post-placement support at no cost
  • Finding and connecting job-ready skilled workers to you
  • Improving your retention rate by continuing to work with you after placement

  • Connecting you to apprenticeships and opportunities with BC construction employers
  • Providing extra financial supports and benefits to ensure you’re job ready
  • Following up with you after placement to ensure success
