Building Trades of Alberta

A few weeks ago, BTA took Grand Chief of Treaty 6 and Chief of Enoch Cree Nation Billy Morin, Nation Councillors, and business leaders from Enoch for (socially distanced) tours of United Association Local 488, Trade Winds to Success and Alberta Regional Council of Carpenters & Allied Workers training centres.

They got a first hand look at just a few of the impressive education facilities within the unionized skilled trades in Alberta, and we were honoured to host them.

We look forward to continuing our strong working relationship with Enoch Cree Nation and others looking for a successful Path Forward with the skilled trades.
