Labour-starved provinces seek new ways to draw high-school students to skilled trades

In the bustling landscape of Canada’s labour market, the demand for skilled trades workers is steadily rising, casting a spotlight on the pivotal role they play in driving the nation’s economy forward. Amidst this burgeoning demand, Lanterra garnered attention in a recent Globe and Mail article for its approach to addressing this shortage.

Canada stands atop the G7 countries when it comes to the percentage of working-age individuals equipped with college or university credentials, as per Statistics Canada. However, this success is overshadowed by a noticeable dearth of new entrants in skilled trades—a gap that Lanterra aims to bridge.

At the heart of Lanterra’s strategy lies a commitment to nurturing talent from a young age. By offering high school students apprenticeship opportunities, Lanterra is not only providing invaluable hands-on experience but also instilling a sense of purpose and direction in aspiring trades workers. 

Central to Lanterra’s ethos is the provision of mentorship, ensuring that each apprentice receives guidance and support from seasoned professionals. 

By investing in the potential of young talent, Lanterra is not just shaping individual futures but also laying the groundwork for a stronger, more resilient workforce—one that is poised to meet the demands of Canada’s tomorrow.
