Building Our Future: A Low-Carbon Training Strategy For The Trades

Building Our Future: A Low-Carbon Training Strategy for the Trades is a workforce training approach designed for construction trades working on large buildings (Part 3) such as offices, residential towers, and institutional buildings. This report summarizes findings gained through primary and secondary research, building on existing knowledge from thought leaders across British Columbia and Canada, and from direct consultations with over 100 stakeholders engaged through the study.

The low-carbon training strategy for the trades includes:

  • Priorities for low-carbon curriculum content development;
  • Pathways for new and practicing tradespeople to gain accreditation and recognition of their low-carbon building skills; and,
  • Recommendations for process improvements to facilitate growth in the number of low-carbon skilled trades professionals.
