Welcome to the British Columbia Construction Association’s Skilled Trades Employment Program

For Employers

STEP is a no-fee resource for BC employers, and a vital part of personnel planning.

STEP has been supplying BC construction employers with job-ready workers for skilled trades and general labour jobs since 2006.

From screening and assessment to training and supplies, STEP quickly finds the right candidates for your skilled trades jobs and apprenticeships.

Get STEP support: we screen individuals on your behalf, and support them by opening doors to employment – certifications, equipment, education, networking opportunities.

Whether you’re seeking apprentices or labourers, our programs provide options to supply for employer needs.  We work with all 60 Industry Training Authority recognized construction trades to help employers and employees achieve their employment goals.

It’s been great because these people come to us – they’ve already been screened, they’re interested and they’re a fit for us.

Take a serious look at it.  It’s been totally positive. The program was a huge benefit to our company.

STEP can help employers:

  • connect with job-ready skilled workers – our program thoroughly assesses existing skills and attributes to ensure you find a great match
  • improve retention rates by continuing to work with workers and employers after a placement is made
