Recruitment strategy tackles skilled trades shortage in Atlantic Canada

The Construction Association of Prince Edward Island (CAPEI) is collaborating with the Canadian government and regional partners to tackle the critical shortage of skilled trades in Atlantic Canada's construction sector. With a $210,000 non-repayable contribution from ACOA's Regional Economic Growth through Innovation (REGI) program, CAPEI aims to implement a recruitment and retention strategy. This initiative, supported by an additional $160,000 from the Province of Prince Edward Island through Skills PEI, will connect construction companies to immigration expertise services, engage qualified workers internationally, and provide integration training. The goal is to expedite hiring for in-demand positions, addressing immediate workforce shortages and promoting regional economic growth. This effort aligns with the Government of Canada's commitment to boosting the housing supply and creating well-paying jobs in Atlantic Canada.
