We have helped build Alberta, and we are working hard to make it even better. To manage our activities, we created the Building Trades of Alberta Charitable Foundation in 2001. Since then, the BTA and the building trades workers have contributed more than $7.6 million to more than 70 worthwhile organizations in the province of Alberta. In addition, our affiliated locals give back to worthwhile causes in their communities.
Building Trades of Alberta is made up of over 60,000 unionized skilled trades workers across Alberta who are members of 14 trade unions. We care deeply about our province, our communities, and our fellow citizens. Together, we make giving back to our communities a priority.
