Water, waste and sewage systems – hallmarks of urban living – require high-level skills to design, install and maintain. In our program, you’ll be introduced to the skills necessary to begin your career as a plumber. Graduates of this program may find a range of opportunities, including apprenticeship, construction industry work, green energy initiatives, and municipal water and sewage treatment.
A 10-year outlook for the Canadian Labour Market (2006-2015), prepared by Human Resources and Social Development Canada, identified home builders and renovators as occupations showing signs of shortages. The report predicts that these occupations are expected to continue to face shortage pressures over the next 10 years, as are contractors and supervisors of trades and related workers.
Given this potential shortage, as well as the boom in construction across the country, students with plumbing skills are projected to have an advantage in the job market.
