Find Work

STEP got me tools, got me set up, and I was on my way! Before that, I had hit every roadblock you can possibly imagine.

To find a program like STEP is just a feeling you can’t even describe.

Connect your existing trades-related certifications to great opportunities throughout the province; or, STEP can help eligible participants to get the right training, materials, and connections to move your skills and career forward to apprenticeship and journeyperson status.

We work with individuals to assess existing skills and attributes, then to have those skills recognized and help with the steps needed to further their career.

STEP can also connect individuals, training programs, and employers together.

No two situations are the same.  There are several ways we may be able to assist eligible clients; from job placement to workplace skills to dedicated training courses, there are many options available to provide you with a bridge to employment.

STEP is interested in creating a skilled workforce for employers, and a safe work environment for workers.
