Find A Trade

We want to make sure you have an opportunity to look around the building trades for a bit... find out as much as you can... and then make a decision that works for you.

To get you started, we've built this portal to help you explore. Simply use the tools below to select a trade you want to explore and where you live — the resulting page will give you info that includes:

  • About the Trade: with information provided by the BC Industry Training Authority, the national Red Seal program, and BC WorkFutures (with details on working conditions, main duties and career paths).
  • About the Training: where you can find approved training, along with info on grants and other financial assistance.
  • About the Union: find out what union you'll belong to and what it can do for you.

How to use the tool

It's easy. Just use the drop-downs to select a trade and region. You'll get the most results if you leave the region set to "Any".

They are employed by construction companies and bricklaying contractors or they may be self-employed.

Bricklayers should be in good physical condition, be aware of safety issues and have good manual dexterity. They also need to have a good sense of balance as they work with heavy equipment and materials on narrow platforms and scaffolds. Bricklayers also need to have a have a good aesthetic eye, and be able to recognize patterns, lines and proportions.
